The New York State Council of School Superintendents (NYSCOSS) and its Commission on Diversity and Inclusivity is committed to ensuring schools and school districts foster an environment that embraces diversity and inclusiveness. As part of this commitment, the Council is holding regional sessions. On May 10, 2019, Monroe 1 BOCES hosted one of these sessions that brought together teams of dedicated learners representing administrators, teachers, staff and board members to connect and engage in thoughtful dialogue on creating diverse and inclusive communities, gender diversity in leadership and building teams for equity.
On April 23, component school districts' boards of education unanimously approved Monroe #1 BOCES’ proposed $5,586,353 administrative budget for the 2019-2020 school year. Component school boards also voted to fill three seats on the BOCES Board of Education. Re-elected are D. Bryan Buttram, representing the Rush-Henrietta CSD, and Laura Whitcomb, representing the East Rochester Union Free Schools. Nita Lumb-Singh D.D.S., representing the Pittsford Central School District, was also elected. Each three-year term begins July 1.
