The Spackenkill Union Free School District has earned aTitanium School Safety Excellence Award from the Utica National Insurance Group. This is the company’s highest award for safety, with Spackenkill scoring in the top 5 percent of 300 insured New York State districts for 2023.

Categories assessed for the award include bullying prevention programs, playground safety, and concussion management, among many others; they are measured using specific, quantifiable surveys. Spackenkill administration has accepted a certificate from Utica National Representatives to commemorate the District’s safety efforts and a $500 award for use in furthering these efforts.
“Safety and health concerns continue to be a priority in our school districts,” explained Brian Saville, Senior Vice President in Utica National’s Educational Institutions Unit. “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 Spackenkill among them.”
