All BOCES instructional programs and offices are closed
Due to an order issued by Gov. Andrew Cuomo, all K-12 schools will remain closed through the rest of the academic year. A decision regarding summer school is pending. Instruction will continue to be provided remotely. 
The closure order is part of a proactive effort to limit exposure to the Coronavirus. All BOCES offices will also remain closed. Updated information will be posted in this location as it becomes available. 
All schools are prepared to provide student meals (two per day per student) at designated pick-up locations throughout the county. You do not have to go to the pick-up site at your school; any site will serve you. To view a list of those locations, click here for Broome County schools,  click here for Tioga County schools.  
Latest updates: Governor says key data points are trending downward, but cautions reopening will be gradual to prevent infection rates from rising again. To read district superintendent's staff briefing, click here.

    Jorge engages students to teach them the easiest and most exciting Latin dance: the Dominican Republic's national dance, "Merengue." First, Jorge demonstrates the basic step and turns, then has the participants practice & learn a full choreography of the different turns.

    Both the students & the teachers have a great time learning this dance!

    With a minimum of 3 sessions, the choreographed repertoire of turns can be used for a performance for the rest of the school. The performance can be done to pre-recorded music or along with one of Jorge's Latin bands.

    For an extended an more meaningful experience, you may also add/include this workshop in Jorge's entry "Residencies."
