 Wednesday, March 14, marks the 1 month anniversary of the mass shooting that occurred at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida.

Seventeen people were killed and seventeen more were wounded, making it one of the world's deadliest school massacres.

At 10:00 am West Middle School will join the nation in remembering each person that lost their life by ringing a bell 17 times.  We will then offer students the opportunity to express their views and concerns by having the auditorium open for anyone that would like to leave the classroom.   We do not want students to leave the building.

We are deeply saddened by the tragic news from Florida. As educators and as parents, it is difficult to comprehend such catastrophic events. We feel closely connected to the children, teachers and staff, families and community who were so devastated by this loss of innocent lives. I want to reassure you that we take school safety and security very seriously across the Binghamton City School District. We are vigilant and proactive when it comes to our children's safety and have clear plans and procedures to deal with emergency situations. We will look to learn what we can from this latest school tragedy and use that information over the coming weeks to determine what, if any, improvements can be made in security and response procedures. [...click for more]

The district is creating a Family Engagement Task Force and would like your input. We realize that the only way to improve engagement, communication and collaboration is to listen and learn from our families as to what we can do better to support them. The Task Force will meet three times this year and anticipate the first meeting to be held in February 2018. We would like some input on the location and times that work best for families. We will also use this information as we plan future events. We appreciate you taking the time to complete this survey and hope you are interested and able to join us. Thank you. Here is a link to the Family Engagment Survey [...click for more]

Just as with any house, our school buildings require maintenance and, eventually, things must be replaced, updated or rebuilt. Many of our buildings were constructed in the 1950s and, with more than 5,500 students in 10 buildings, maintaining the infrastructure is an important part of providing a safe environment to educate, empower and challenge our students. The capital project will affect every building in the district, with the exception of MacArthur.  The project will be funded by state aid and capital reserves, so there will be NO impact on the local tax levy.

There is no one major building or renovation project in this package, but, rather a collection of upgrades and renovations in each building impacting things like lighting, learning spaces, windows, computer networking infrastructure and signage to name a few. In general, there will be improvements made in the following categories: safety and security, building infrastructure, learning environment and information technology.
