What's New at OCM BOCES

For the 2016-2017 school year, there are some exciting new programs and initiatives at OCM BOCES. One of the most significant changes is that OCM BOCES now has a Main Campus, the home for all Syracuse-area adult education programming, at 110 Elwood Davis Road in the Town of Salina. Also housed at the Main Campus location are all of OCM BOCES administrative, instructional support and business services. The move of these programs to a single location has freed up space at additional OCM BOCES locations allowing for more appropriate groupings and enhanced opportunities for other programs.
