Congratulations to the South Seneca and the Dalton-Nunda Elementary (Keshequa) School Districts! Both schools were awarded grants to fund expanded pre-kindergarten programs after Brockport Research Institute assisted them in their applications.
This New York State Department of Education grant will allow both schools, “to establish new full-day prekindergarten placements, convert existing half-day placements to full-day, or create new half-day placements for three- and/or four-year old students.” The initial funding period is from July 1, 2015 to June 30, 2016.
Congratulations to Tomkins-Seneca-Tioga BOCES and Genesee Valley Educational Partnership (BOCES)! Each were awarded a Career Credentials and Occupational Studies (CDOS) grant from the New York State Department of Education. Brockport Research Institute was proud to be a part of the grant application process for these BOCES programs.
Grant funds will help both organizations and their school districts enhance their instructional programs so that students with disabilities will have “increased access to and participation in career and technical education (CTE) coursework, instruction in the Career Development and Occupational Studies (CDOS) learning standards, and work-based learning opportunities to fulfill requirements for the award of the NYS CDOS Commencement Credential.” Programs and professional development funded by these grants will also offer these students greater access to academic and social supports.
