District Wide Safety Plan
PROJECT SAVE (Safe Schools against Violence in Education) W-FL BOCES -WIDE SAFETY PLAN - Commissioner’s Regulation 155.17
Emergencies in school districts are critical issues that must be addressed in an expeditious and effective manner. Districts are required to develop a district-wide school safety plan designed to prevent or minimize the effects of emergencies and to facilitate the coordination of the district with local and county resources in the event of such incidents or emergencies. To address these emergencies, the State of New York has enacted the Safe Schools against Violence in Education (SAVE) law. Project SAVE is a comprehensive planning effort that addresses prevention, response, and recovery with respect to a variety of emergencies in each school district and its schools.

School safety is a priority. Fortunately, the programs at Wayne Finger Lakes BOCES are very safe. However, no community is immune from the threats that endanger public schools nationwide.
We are introducing a Safe School Helpline® to help prevent such actions. It is designed to assist you in reporting any wrongdoing that impacts our schools, our students or our staff – anonymously, so as to protect your privacy. For example, you may wish to report acts of violence, theft, drug or alcohol use, weapons or sexual harassment.
Just call from a touch-tone phone to 1-800-4-1-VOICE, ext. 359 (418-6423) to leave your information.

The Safe School Helpline® team will transcribe and fax your message, so appropriate action can be taken.
Thank you for your continued support to provide a safe environment for all students. If you have any questions about the Safe School Helpline®, please call your school principal
