BROADALBIN, N.Y. – Parents of students who attend the Broadalbin-Perth Central School District can rest a little easier, knowing new security measures have been created.
The school district says they have added door buzzers, security cameras, and law enforcement officials to their four schools.
This is a result of a school safety forum which was held in January, about a month after the Sandy Hook School Shootings in Newtown, Connecticut.
The law enforcement officers will be from the Broadalbin Village Police Department and the Fulton County Sheriff's Department. A contract with both departments has been put into place, allowing visits by the officers on a regular basis. Although officers will be visiting the school every day, they will not be at the schools during the entire school day.
Superintendent Stephen Tomlinson stated "I am committed to ensuring that every student in the Broadalbin-Perth Central School District has a safe, secure place to learn and every staff member has a safe, secure place to work, These security measures will help ensure that we have safe, productive school year."
