The Utica National School Safety Excellence Awards Program is divided into three levels – titanium, platinum and gold – in which schools have to meet certain criteria in order to earn a certain level of distinction.

OCB earned the highest merit of distinction in the program, the titanium with honors award. Accompanying this prestigious award was a grant in the amount of $500 to further enhance current safety efforts.

“Safety and health concerns continue to be a priority in our school districts,” explained Mark Aquino, regional manager in Utica National’s risk management department. “Districts that go ‘above and beyond’ to provide a safe, healthy and focused culture for learning are to be applauded, and we’re pleased to count Oswego County BOCES among them.”

Utica National officials presented representatives from OCB with the award at the company’s annual school safety seminar in Syracuse on March 31.
