On April 4th, Sullivan BOCES held its Annual Dinner Meeting for its eight component school districts. The students at BOCES took center stage as they displayed their skills and talked about their programs with the Boards of Education and administrators.
The night started off with Public Safety students greeting and escorting guests through art-filled hallways to the welcome reception. The artwork was created by K-12 students in the Special Education Program. In the reception area, students and staff members displayed information on the various programs offered at BOCES. Students from the Career & Tech Center served as representatives for the fourteen Career & Tech programs.
The Culinary Arts students, under the instruction of Chef Kathy Poppo, dazzled guests with their talents as they enjoyed everything from appetizers to dessert. “I am so proud of my students. Although they are only first-year students, they are a wonderful group of kids,” said Chef Poppo, “Tonight’s dinner was a big event for us, and my students came together and worked well as a team to make the night flow smoothly.”
During the meeting, Susan Schmidt, BOCES Deputy Superintendent / Acting CEO presented the tentative 2017-18 budget and discussed what’s on the horizon for the upcoming school year.
On April 25th, the districts will vote on the 2017-18 BOCES Administrative Budget.
