A Message from the District Superintendent and Senior Executive Officer
The 2020-21 school year has certainly been one we will never forget. The
ongoing pandemic presented challenges that threatened to disrupt the learning and development of our students. Yet, through it all, our number one priority has been our students and to keep our schools open while providing both the resources and opportunities to ensure their success.
No great accomplishment is ever done in isolation. Alongside our 24 component school districts, we kept our schools safely open for teaching and learning. Classrooms successfully stretched beyond four walls. Necessary resources were acquired and distributed. Important information was communicated, often daily as changes came with frequency.
At the same time, we saw tremendous growth within our BOCES. We launched new services and expanded others to meet the needs of our many stakeholders. Business partnerships grew and were strengthened to ensure career experiences are available for students while other partnerships provided new personal and professional growth opportunities. We opened a new school and broke ground on two additional campuses for the students we serve.
We are proud to share these and other accomplishments with through this annual report. We are humbled by the strength and fortitude of our staff and students, resilience of our district leaders and all staff, support of regional businesses and community organizations and unwavering dedication of the employees of Capital Region BOCES that made them all possible.
Through unity and resilience, we have grown. We will continue to adapt to whatever comes our way because no challenge is too great when we face it together.
With continued respect and support,
Anita Murphy and Joe Dragone
