• Welcome to the Office of Safety and Security: 

    The safety and security of our students and staff is - and will continue to be - our highest priority.
     
    Each year BCSD plans and executes several large-scale crisis simulations. Those events are made possible by partnerships with local and national law enforcement. The goal -- to give teachers and administrators hands-on training in the area of Safety and Security.
