NORTH NORWICH – Four years ago, the two facilities operated by the Board of Cooperative Education Services to serve the 16 component school districts in Delaware, Chenango, Madison and Otsego counties were overcrowded and ill-equipped to prepare students to meet the ever-changing needs of the real world. Now, however, after the completion of a $48 million renovation and expansion project which overhauled both the Chenango Campus in North Norwich and the Robert W. Harrold Campus in Sidney Center, that is no longer the case.
According to District Superintendent Bill Tammaro, the authentic workstations and state-of-the art technology now in use at both campuses, as well as other facility improvements, will both create more opportunities for DCMO BOCES students and better prepare them to compete successfully in the global economy.
“These facilities are spectacular for our students,” reported Tammaro on Saturday afternoon, as he addressed those gathered for a ribbon cutting ceremony to celebrate the grand opening of the Chenango Campus. A similar ceremony was held earlier that day in Sidney Center.
