The Marlboro Central School District installs and maintains high-tech safety and surveillance equipment. Each school building is locked throughout the day, access to the building is managed through access control technology which allows staff to view and interact with a visitor to the school prior to entry. Visitors are then received by school monitors for sign in procedures and to address needs. In addition, each school maintains a fleet of security cameras that allow for electronic surveillance of outside areas, hallways and stairwells. These systems work together to provide an additional layer of safety and security for students and staff.
For specific health related information or questions, please contact your child's school nurse. Our professional nursing staff and district appointed doctor offer a high level of service and care to our students. In addition to medical professionals, the schools also employs people in the mental health field to include but not limited to school psychologists, school social workers and a substance abuse counselor. Access to these services is referred to by the Principal or the Director of Student Services. Parents or students with questions about these services should speak to their school Principal or school nurse.
Internet & Online Safety
As the roles of students, parents, schools, and districts evolve in response to technological change, so does the potential of educational technology to support new forms of communication, collaboration, and learning. The Internet and other collaboration tools are essential to education, future careers, and lives, yet ways of socializing and communicating on the Internet come with certain risks. In response, the New York Department of Education provides links to the listed resources listed in providing assistance designed to promote the proper and safe use of the Internet.
Additionally, each student in grades 6-12 is required to complete the "Acceptable Use Policy for Computerized Equipment" at the beginning of each year. While the school, by law (CIPA) must maintain certain safety programs and protocols required, it is also essential the students behave appropriately online and be good digital citizens, just as they would expected to be in a classroom. Marlboro schools uses a product called Learning.com which provides a variety of online lessons for students , including safety and digital citizenship. To learn more, ask your child's teacher about www.learning.com and how to gain access.
