Board To Board: Fall Edition

News from the Wayne-Finger Lakes BOCES Board of Education

Letter from BOE President, Lynn Gay:

Greetings from the Wayne-Finger Lakes BOCES Board of Education! This fall issue of Board To Board features some very exciting happenings that we are thrilled to share with all of you. As part of our growth as an organization, we celebrated the opening of the new Pathways Technology Early College High School (PTECH) educational building. We also welcomed a new member to the Board of Education, as well as celebrated multiple employee milestones. We are committed to providing innovative methods of educating our region’s youth and young adults, which is evident in the educational communities we strive to nurture. None of this would be possible without the help of our component boards, school districts, and educators. Thank you for being champions of education and impacting students in ways that truly Make Success Possible. If you have any questions, please know that you always have a representative from Wayne-Finger Lakes BOCES Board of Education.
