Brockway Has Made Enhancements to School Safety, Added AP Course Heading into 2018-19

BROCKWAY, Pa. (EYT) – As the new school year approaches in Brockway, superintendent Jeff Vizza said there are a lot of new things students, parents and the community can expect.

“We have made a lot of enhancements with school safety,” Vizza said. “We have two school police officers, one in each building.”

Along the lines of school safety, Vizza said there are other safety initiatives that the district is putting in place as well.

“We are going to have blinds for the classrooms and jamming systems for the doors,” Vizza said. “We are also looking at the way we conduct safety drills and making adjustments as need. We are definitely concentrating on the safety aspect.”

In the classroom, there will be some changes as well.

“We are revamping our PSSA and Keystone remediation courses,” Vizza said. “We are revamping how we deliver the courses.”

The district has also added an AP History course bringing the total number of AP courses – students can earn college credits by taking an exam at the end of the school year – to nine in the district.
