BOCES Capital Project Proposal Approved
Voters approved the Monroe 2-Orleans BOCES Proposed Capital Project on Dec. 16 by a vote of 607 to 99. The $29.2 million project is the first of its kind for BOCES 2 and will bring significant upgrades to the main campus on Big Ridge Road in Spencerport. The plan will increase classroom capacity to accommodate growth in enrollment in career and technical education programs and add space for professional development for teachers and administrators from around the region. In addition, there will be extensive electrical, heating, air conditioning and plumbing improvements to repair and replace infrastructure that is beyond its useful life.
"We'd like to thank the voters and our component districts for their support of this student-focused project," said Monroe 2-Orleans BOCES District Superintendent Jo Anne Antonacci. "As we approach our 60th anniversary year, these improvements will position our students for continued success as they pursue college and career readiness." The next step for the project is final design and submission to the New York State Education Department for approval in the summer of 2015. Pending state approval, construction is expected to start in the summer of 2016 with completion in 2018.

Dignity for All Students Act
New York State's Dignity for All Students Act (The Dignity Act) seeks to provide the State's public elementary and secondary school students with a safe and supportive environment free from discrimination, intimidation, taunting, harassment, and bullying on school property, a school bus and/or at a school function. To comply with the Dignity Act, at least one staff member in each school must be designated as the DAC and be thoroughly trained to handle human relations.
Parents' Bill of Rights for Data Privacy and Security
As part of the Common Core Implementation Reform Act, Education Law §2-d requires that each educational agency in the State of New York must develop a Parents' Bill of Rights for Data Privacy and Security (Parents' Bill of Rights).
The purpose of the Parents' Bill of Rights is to inform parents (which also include legal
guardians or persons in parental relation to a student, but generally not the parents of a student
who is age eighteen or over) of the legal requirements regarding privacy, security and use of
student data. In addition to the federal Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA),
Education Law §2-d provides important new protections for student data, and new remedies for
breaches of the responsibility to maintain the security and confidentiality of such data.
Additional information will be provided by the Department's Chief Privacy Officer (CPO). The office of the CPO can be reached at CPO@mail.nysed.gov.
