  • Thank you Harrison PD!

    We thank the members of the Harrison Police Department - including Lt. John Vasta, pictured here with Supervisor of Safety & Facilities Brandon Cruz - who this morning toured our Mamaroneck Avenue training center. 

    Their walkthrough allowed them to offer expert insights to improve the safety and security of our building, which houses three SWBOCES centers and numerous departments and programs. 

    Our school districts are encouraged to invite local law enforcement agencies to do the same. This helps to familiarize officers with the layout of facilities to better support them during responses to emergency events. We appreciate their partnership!

  • Important Information Regarding Section One Volleyball Finals

    Regarding recent reports as to the location of sectional volleyball finals in November, that location has yet to be determined. No decision as to venue has been officially nor tentatively made.

    There is a Request for Proposal process for selecting the venue. That is an open process that will allow venues interested in hosting the finals to submit a proposal and be considered to host the finals. There is no short list of potential or tentative venues.

    The RFP process is not yet under way so it would be inappropriate to discuss potential venues. RFPs will be made available in the near future.

    The final decision will be made by the Section One Executive Committee with recommendations and input from other committees.

    That decision would likely not be made before Aug. 1. At that time, the venue would be announced publicly.
