Other informationEdit

In April 2008, the district won a Safety Excellence award from the school system's prime insurer, Utica National Insurance Group. Of 340 schools, 54 of them –including Clyde-Savannah– received Titanium Plus status and a $500 award. To earn the award, the district documented 124 safety-related items. Dean of Students Larry Hartwell says, "We've practiced just about everything in the emergency handbook...." The state-mandated Emergency Management Plan includes detailed procedures for bomb threats, chemical spills on the railway in Clyde and severe weather. Clyde-Savannah schools have been set up with the Red Cross to act as emergency centers. If the schools must be evacuated, the district would set up a command post in the bus garage, sending all phone lines through there. If a chemical spill were to occur, the schools can immediately close all air-circulation systems that draw in outside air.[9]
