BOCES Staff Gathers for Beginning of New School Year

On Aug. 30, nearly 300 employees packed the gym at Cayuga-Onondaga BOCES in advance of the start of the new school year.  

The festivities kicked off with a staff breakfast, which saw personnel commiserating about a summer that always seems to fly by too quickly, but also talking excitedly about the road ahead.

Cayuga-Onondaga BOCES District Superintendent Brian Hartwell discussed how that road will be traversed. Throughout Dr. Hartwell's presentation, the message was clear: a desire for BOCES to make continued strides towards becoming the regional leader in world-class educational services and support. To this end, he encouraged all employees to seek out any tool that might help them perform their job even better. The better that we, collectively, can do, the better we're serving our students.

Recent hires from various departments throughout the BOCES were acknowledged as well, as were current employees who have been with the institution 25 years! Congratulations (and sincere appreciation) go out to Renee Lawrence, Jonathan Becker, Helen Day, and Ann Marie Bizzari for their milestone anniversary.

If the breakfast energized the body, talking about the road ahead for BOCES energized the soul. It was a great first step toward a fantastic 2018-19 school year.
