Sweet Home School Board Recognized for Regional Partnership

Sweet Home School Board Recognized for Regional Partnership

The Sweet Home Central School District was recognized for their longstanding efforts to regionally partner with neighboring school districts through a collaborative known as Erie 1 Board of Cooperative Educational Services (BOCES). Board of Education members were present at Erie 1 BOCES Northtowns Academy in Tonawanda as they heard from a Sweet Home resident, Rashaad Rogers, and accepted a plaque on behalf of the district.

Approximately 70 Sweet Home Central School District students attend BOCES instructional programs for alternative education, career and technical education and special education. Through this collaborative partnership, the school district has been able to contain spending while affording students additional opportunities for learning.  Fifty-eight of those students are enrolled in 17 of BOCES' 27 career and technology programs. From dental labs to electrical systems, BOCES provides classes at three, state-of-the-art, regionally-based centers.
