• What's Happening at BOCES?

    BOCES Study Update:

    New York State Education Commissioner, Richard Mills, held a meeting at Sullivan BOCES this morning with District Superintendents, (Sullivan, Orange-Ulster, Ulster and Putnam-Northern Westchester BOCES), Board Presidents and COO’s  (Sullivan and Orange Ulster BOCES) and NYSED representatives to further discuss the BOCES Merger Study.  At the conclusion of the meeting, he provided us with his decision in relation to the proposed merger between Sullivan and Orange-Ulster BOCES. 


    The Commissioner has decided to maintain the Sullivan County BOCES and the Orange-Ulster BOCES as two separate entities. 


    As a result of this decision, the Sullivan County BOCES will now be able to move forward with a search for a new District Superintendent.  Martin Ruglis, District Superintendent of Ulster BOCES, will assist the Sullivan County BOCES Board with this process.


    “We are extremely pleased with the Commissioner’s decision and plan to utilize our “new life” to expand and enhance services to our students and our component districts.   At this point, we are excited to be focusing on the future of our BOCES and we will continue to identify new and better ways to serve our students and our districts.  We will also continue to work with Orange-Ulster BOCES as well as Ulster BOCES in areas that will enhance our existing services to meet your needs and increase student performance in our component districts in addition to providing valuable services for our communities” said Anthony Micha, Sullivan County BOCES Interim District Superintendent.
