Brockway school details safety plan, proposes building expansion


Brockway, PA – Brockway is authorizing Amos Rudolph Architecture to draw up proposals to expand the district’s multi-purpose building to add more space for sports teams to practice. It will also allow for elementary students to have recess indoors during bad weather. The proposal will take three months to complete.

Brockway added multiple sports assistant coaches and named Kevin Rush as the new director of bands. Rush replaces Justin Salada, who resigned with immediate effect in July.

The district expanded the time it will have Riverview Intermediate Unit 6 send a social worker to the schools. The social worker was in Brockway three days a week last school year, but will come for four this year. Superintendent Jeff Vizza said this is still an important year to look after students’ mental health needs.

The district emailed its health and safety plan to parents, and Vizza urged parents in the district to read those recommendations. Masks will be required on buses, but they will be highly recommended to be worn by unvaccinated students and staff in the buildings. Vizza said there are other options for parents in the district, all of which will be outlined in the email.

Brockway begins school on August 25. The next board meeting will be September 14.
