Olean, NY – April 12-22, 2021 – Several local students were recently honored as top competitors in their fields in the Skills USA NY State competition that was held virtually for all participants.

Key areas of competition include communication, construction, heavy equipment operation, welding, animal sciences, health sciences, hospitality and tourism, human services, information technology, leadership, manufacturing, and STEM.

 

Many CA BOCES Career and Technical Education (CTE) students from centers in Belmont, Ellicottville, and Olean competed in the annual competition with several of the students placing.

1st Place – Customer Service – Emily Burdick

CA BOCES Assistant Superintendent for Career and Technical Education Programs, James Schifley, was pleased with the level of participation and the overall performance of student competitors. “We had many students from our three centers compete in their respective areas, and I was impressed with the level of skill they demonstrated,” he said. “We train our students to be “career-ready” in their fields, and instances like this allow them to put their skills to the test. The teachers and advisors did an amazing job preparing the students for this event. They had to shift to accomplishing this in a virtual environment which required a great deal of additional time, effort, and resources. The effort was well worth it.”

CA BOCES Forms Animation Partnership with Rochester Institute of Technology’s Magic Spell Studios

Rochester, NY – April 15, 2021 – Soon, school districts in the Cattaraugus-Allegany BOCES (CA BOCES) region will see world-class animations gracing their hallways, school buses, gyms, and theaters.

Through a new partnership with Rochester Institute of Technology’s MAGIC Spell Studios, the Information Technology Department at CA BOCES is preparing to offer custom animation offerings to component school districts in the region.

CA BOCES Information Technology Director, Michael Graf, said that the new opportunity will be a forward-looking opportunity for school districts. “While we already have a professional animator on our team, our new partnership with MAGIC Spell Studios has allowed us the opportunity to work with a professional-grade studio team in offering animation on a broader scale to our component districts at a reasonable price through existing CoSer structures.”

CA BOCES District Superintendent, Scott Payne, said that he believes the partnership will be advantageous to both the BOCES organization and component school districts. “Customized animation options like this will allow our educators, both in BOCES classrooms and in our component districts, to use even more creativity when working to engage students,” he said. “I am excited to see this program offered in our region.”

MAGIC Spell Studios, LLC, is the entrepreneurial and commercial heart of MAGIC at RIT. Encompassing a fully functional film sound stage, sound mix and color correction post-production studios, a 4K Dolby Atmos theater, and several working media laboratories, MAGIC Spell Studios, and their student and faculty talent, is ready and available to work on animation and media projects through this new partnership with CA BOCES.

CA BOCES is currently running pilots with two regional school districts to finalize programming and will soon announce program details to all component school districts. Potential projects include animated avatars of administrators and mascots, character education animated story lines, and 2D/3D creations for use in sensory rooms and hallways.

 

Graf said that he is also excited for what this type of programming can do to boost this career field in the region. “Aside from providing this high-level of affordable programming to our districts to help engage students, we have partnered with a world class university and production team to blend together our current technology offerings and support with animation and whatever new technology is around the corner,” he said. “The hope beyond this is to interest students in video, animation, and create a strong presence in our region for this field that might typically land in an urban setting.”

Graf also mentioned that he is impressed by the caliber of programming and support at RIT. “The team at MAGIC has been extremely helpful and engaged in creating programming that benefits their students professionally and also creates good learning experiences and engagement for youth in our region – it is a win-win.”

David Long, Director of RIT MAGIC Center/MAGIC Spell Studios said: “MAGIC Spell Studios is very excited to contribute the expertise and talents of RIT’s animation students to this fun and exciting project with the BOCES team.  Putting positive themes into school buildings with living animated characters, school mascots, and even cartoon teachers and administrators is a perfect way to make these messages engaging and exciting for everyone.”

Programming is projected to begin in early Fall 2021.

Wales Named School Psychologist of the Year for Cattaraugus, Chautauqua, and Allegany Counties

Olean, NY – March 26, 2021 – Michael Wales, a School Psychologist for Cattaraugus-Allegany BOCES, was recently named the School Psychologist of the Year for Cattaraugus, Chautauqua, and Allegany counties through the New York State Association of School Psychologists (NYASP).

Wales, whose career in school psychology spans over 30 years, is currently completing his sixth year with CA BOCES, primarily serving Scio and Whitesville School Districts. In his role, he evaluates students for learning and behavioral needs, conducts pre-school screening assessments, provides counseling to students and serves on district committees on Special Education & 504 Accommodation. He also helps school districts collect data regarding students’ academic and mental wellness needs and provides professional development presentations to teachers and school support staff on a variety of topics. Prior to joining CA BOCES, Wales was a school psychologist and CSE chairperson for a Steuben County school district for 25 years. He is currently an adjunct instructor for the Graduate Division of Counseling & School Psychology at Alfred University (AU) and has taught at AU for 25 years in that capacity. He has also taught undergraduate psychology courses at Alfred State College and Empire State College.

 

Of the honor, Wales said: “I am grateful to NYASP for their support as well as CA BOCES and the school districts I serve (Scio & Whitesville) for giving me the opportunity to continue to fulfill the purpose of school psychology.”

 

Andrea Burch, Assistant Professor of School Psychology at Alfred University and Chapter representative for the NYASP organization, nominated Wales and said that he has made a tremendous difference for children and families in our community. “I have encountered few school psychologists throughout my career who would be more deserving of such an honor,” she said. “In my opinion, Mike’s consistent commitment to training while embodying the practice model as a school psychologist in his daily life are strong evidence of how deserving he is of such an award.”
