Opening Day 2019-20 (1) Opening Day 2019-20 (4)

Each year before school officially starts, all teachers, administrators and staff come together at the BOCES Educational Resource Center (BERC) in Nyack to celebrate the start of a new academic year. During our 2019-20 Opening Day event on September 3, Chief Operating Officer Dr. Mary Jean Marsico addressed the special philosophy that guides our agency and supports all learners, and unveiled this year’s theme – “All Are Welcome Here.” At Rockland BOCES, we acknowledge the contributions of those who foster inclusive excellence and promote an agency climate in which every member of the community – all ages and abilities – may thrive and be appreciated, captured in our annual “Rockland BOCES: A Year of Excellence” video.

As part of the 2019-20 Opening Day celebration, Executive Director of Human Resources Yasmin Helou-Caré recognized 51 employees with 940 combined years of service to Rockland BOCES.

Our Rockland BOCES Board of Education, Executive Leadership Team, Cabinet and staff wish every learner a healthy and successful 2019-20 academic year.
