Sullivan BOCES Announces Plans to Relocate from 6 Wierk Avenue in Liberty, to the Liberty Mall

Sullivan BOCES announces plans to relocate several departments and divisions from 6 Wierk Avenue in Liberty, to the Liberty Mall.  Formerly Sullivan’s Department Store, the Liberty Mall, is located at 15 Sullivan Avenue in Liberty, New York.  BOCES anticipates that its curriculum and instructional supports services, management services, adult education, administration, grant funded programs, and its conference center facilities will be moved to the new location.

According to Robert M. Dufour, Ed.D. District Superintendent of BOCES, “The relocation will allow BOCES to accommodate the expansion of the management and support services offered to our component school districts.  The new facility will be more accommodating for individuals attending meetings and professional development workshops with everything located in one contiguous space on the ground floor.  In addition, more parking will be available.”

It is anticipated that the move will take place at the beginning of 2020, with the staggering of office relocations to accommodate optimum workflow and minimize downtime for the school districts that the BOCES serves.  All offices are expected to be at the new facility by June 30, 2020.  “Additional information about the schedule of moves will be shared as the project progresses,” added Dr. Dufour.  “The good news is all of our telephone numbers will remain the same, and our offices will be maintained in Liberty, which is central to all of our component school districts.”

Specific offices affected by the move include the district superintendent’s office, the BOCES business office, the central business office, human resources, model schools, arts in education, school improvement, telecommunications support, school library system, health & safety services, adult education, technology, communications, CAP grant and the Sullivan County Teacher Center.
