Members of the New York State Senate Education Committee toured the Capital Region BOCES Career & Technical Education Center – Albany Campus (CTE) on Monday, meeting with faculty, staff and students, including BCHS students who spend a part of their school day at the state-of-the-art facility.

During a 90-minute visit, the state senators and education committee staff members learned how CTE programs are addressing the national skilled worker shortage and providing students with valuable life and career skills. We are big supporters of CTE, and I am thrilled to see the work being done in these state-of-the-art classrooms. It’s wonderful,” said Sen. Shelley Mayer, Chair of the New York State Senate Education Committee. Mayer was joined on the tour by Sens. James Tedisco and Jacob Ashby.

More than two dozen CTE programs are offered to BC juniors and seniors each year at the Career and Technical Education Center Albany Campus. Students interested in adding CTE to their schedules or who want to learn more about available programs should contact their school counselor.
