School Safety Information

The safety of our students is of the utmost importance.  We are particularly sensitive to the fact that our young 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 our Year One and Year Two students so that they have ongoing adult supervision during the school day.  

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 College student and staff member has the right to feel safe at school. Concerns about safety or anything that might place BCEC 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

Students in Years 3, 4 and 5 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.

School Bus Passenger Conduct and Safety

BCEC students are responsible for following all rules and regulations of the base high school and bus driver when they are on campus, including on the school bus.  Using Buncombe County Schools transportation is a privilege that can be revoked if there is misconduct at the base school, on the school bus, or at the bus stop.
