CV Holds Community Safety Forum
Students and student safety are the top priority of the Chenango Valley Central School District. In wake of recent national tragedies, the district held a community safety forum on March 20.  The objectives of this forum were to provide information on current safety measures put into practice by the district and to provide CV community members the chance to deliberate on school safety, encouraging a collective conversation.
 
The event began in the high school auditorium with an informative presentation from a panel consisting of Superintendent Dr. David Gill, Assistant Superintendent Michelle Feyerabend, School Resource Officer (SRO) Deputy Robert Stapleton, Board of Education President Kelly Warwick, Director of Pupil Services Brad Tomm, SUNY Broome Center for Civic Engagement Coordinator Lisa Strahley, CVMS Social Worker Beth Hubenthal, and CVHS Guidance Counselor Judy Hayes.

These individuals shared practices that the district currently implements towards safety such as visitors needing to display IDs before entering school buildings, security vestibules at each school, mental health first aid training opportunities, assessments for mental health/social needs, character education programs, transportation protocols, evacuation drills, continued review of district and building-level safety plans, and the use of building-level safety teams. Deputy Stapleton also discussed his role as the school resource officer, along with his emphasis for community involvement even when school is not in session.
 
After this presentation was complete, attendees were invited to attend small breakout sessions held in Chenango Valley High School classrooms. These groups, moderated by representatives from the SUNY Broome Center for Civic Engagement, allowed for individuals to share thoughts on safety, and encouraged them to respectfully and openly listen to other’s ideas. Participants were also given three safety scenario options, and discussed the pros and cons that could be associated with each safety measure.

At the end of this discussion, attendees were asked to fill out a survey regarding the event. Results from this survey will be compiled and later shared on CV’s district website.
