BOCES students not responsible for regent fees due to emergency evacuation

NORWICH After a bomb threat evacuation of DCMO BOCES during regents testing, there were concerns about fees associated with the regent test taking process, but BOCES administrators said there won't be any charges for students who didn't take their tests.
