  • Video brings Sprain Brook Academy students' story to Albany

    Our students are our best advocates when we seek to share the SWBOCES story with our state representatives, as we did on Advocacy Day in Albany on Feb. 27.
     
    The impact of the Sprain Brook Academy, in partnership with the Westchester County Department of Correction, is not an easy story to tell, though. With the use of video, however, we were able to "bring" two young men from the program to the state capitol to share the impact SWBOCES has made in helping put their lives on a better path. Meet Messiah and James.

  • Training animals, big and small, on our Careers campus

    Michael D'Abruzzo's Animal Science class has shared more videos to the growing library at his class page, one demonstrating in-class training techniques to teach a rat to "play soccer," and another in which a veterinary technician uses the same concepts at a zoo to train a tiger to present body parts for medical exams and blood draws without the need to tranquilize the animal.

    D'Abruzzo says these skills will be significant assets for graduating students seeking employment in a range of animal fields. These all skills are difficult to acquire without direct work experience, says D'Abruzzo, the kind of experience his students are gaining routinely in has classroom.
