Scott Bradley Eager to Support Cayuga-Onondaga BOCES Students as Director of Career and Technical Education

Scott Bradley, an experienced building administrator and work-based learning educator, recently started as the new Director of Career and Technical Education (CTE) at Cayuga-Onondaga BOCES.

Bradley taught business and oversaw student placements in co-ops and internships in the Wayne Central School District’s Internship Program, where he worked for eight years. He then received his administrative degree and served as assistant principal of Byron-Bergen Junior-Senior High School, then building principal of North Rose-Wolcott High School.

“I like this position (Director of CTE) because it brings together the work-based learning and administrative experience I had, so I’m aiming to integrate that into the programs here to give our students those experiences,” said Bradley.

When he was a building administrator, Bradley loved visiting BOCES to see the hands-on programs his students were involved in. He recalled the students being very engaged and truly excited to learn. In his new role, he looks forward to visiting CTE classrooms frequently and having conversations with students about their interests, future goals, and how BOCES can support them.

Although he only began at BOCES on July 5, Bradley’s commitment to CTE students is already evident. He attended the CTE Graduation at Holland Stadium on June 22, and has since expressed his excitement about attending events in the future, such as open house, National Technical Honor Society induction, SkillsUSA competitions, and end-of-year ceremonies. He also stressed the value of the relationships between BOCES and industry partners, which provide CTE students with valuable work-based learning experience.

Bradley noted that he plans to collaborate with administration and staff to provide the best for students in the region.

“I’m hoping to learn a lot this year, work with the BOCES team to make improvements moving forward and make sure that we’re offering all the component districts the best opportunities that we can for their students when they come here.”
