SIDNEY CENTER – On Dec. 13, 2005, voters in the 16 component school districts of the DCMO BOCES approved a facilities proposal to renovate and expand the two BOCES campuses located in Norwich and Sidney Center. The Robert W. Harrold Campus, located at 270 BOCES Drive in Sidney Center is nearly complete.
The Harrold Campus has 60,000 square feet of new space, and all existing spaces have been renovated. Unique to this campus is a design which connects two previously existing instructional buildings and creates a new, fully connected instructional facility. Many program improvements have been achieved through this undertaking.
Career and Technical Education prepares the workforce of tomorrow to support the businesses in our area. As a result of the expansion and renovations, CTE shops simulate the quality work environments in business and industry. Updated, efficient lighting, heating and air exhaust systems are in place. Appropriately designed customer service areas provide students with opportunities to interact and problem solve with customers. Dedicated classroom space for each CTE program allows for quality, integrated, credit-bearing core academic instruction.
