School Safety Information

The safety of our students is of the utmost importance.  We are particularly sensitive to the fact that our Early College Year One and Year Two students are attending high school on a college campus.  To increase their safety as they become accustomed to this environment, we have special guidelines in place for these groups of students so that they have ongoing adult supervision during the school day.  

Early College Year One and Year Two students will walk with a teacher on the way to and from lunch, and all students should use the pedestrian bridge to cross Victoria Road.  Year One and Year Two students should not be without the supervision of an adult while on campus.

Every Early and Middle College student and staff member has the right to feel safe at school. Concerns about safety or anything that might place BCEC/BCMC or A-B Tech at risk should be reported immediately to one or more of the following:

  • The principal (828) 232-4123
  • A-B Tech security (828) 279-3166
  • Any staff member

Early College Students in Years 3, 4 and 5 and Middle College students are not directly supervised unless attending a high school class or college support. Parents and students are encouraged to discuss family expectations for safe and orderly behavior on the college campus when students are not in high school classes.
