Back to Superintendent Update

Thursday, November 5, 2020

We have seen more and more cases of COVID-19 appear in our regional school districts and within our communities throughout the last several weeks. I commend our school leaders, teachers, staff, and parents on their commitment to maintaining the safest and most productive learning environment — despite the very obvious challenges that are presented. On top of that, I am extremely proud of our students — whether in our CTE Centers or in our component districts — for their flexibility and focus as they tackle a whole new version of education. We are watching, you are doing a great job, and we can see that you are rising to the challenge. Please continue to wash your hands, wear a mask, and practice social distancing as we tackle this pandemic as a community.

Throughout the CA BOCES organization, we continue to see great efforts beyond the management of COVID-19 and that is surely worth celebrating. Our CTE Centers are working safely and effectively with our students from 22 component school districts, our Instructional Support Services team continues to host a variety of online training opportunities and to provide support and crucial activities for educators and students in our region, and our Exceptional Education team continues to meet student needs with care and innovation. Behind the scenes, our support staff continues to provide seamless administrative and technology support to our own team and to those throughout the region. I continue to be impressed.

As always, please know that you can call me at any time should you have questions or concerns at 716-376-8254.

Stay Well,
