Bethlehem student a member of Tech Valley's first graduating class

Earlier this month, Bethlehem student Rose Biggerstaff was among the first class to graduate from Tech Valley High School, which launched in 2007 as a joint venture in project-based learning by two area BOCES.

Biggerstaff was recently featured in the Times Union's coverage of the school's graduation. For the article, click here.

When the school was started in 2007, Capital Region BOCES and Questar III BOCES, each district within the two BOCES were invited to send one student for the inaugural freshmen class. The school has continued to add a new freshmen class every year since then.

Biggerstaff is the only Bethlehem student at the Rensselaer-based school. The district has not sent additional students to Tech Valley High School during the difficult budget climate of recent years.
