NYS Commissioner of Education King visits the GST BOCES Region

New York State Commissioner of Education Dr. John B. King, Jr. visited the GST BOCES region in November to see first-hand the work of the regional STEM initiative. Dr. King saw STEM and FOSS lessons in action during his visits to the Bradford Central School District and Winfield Elementary School in the Corning-Painted Post Area School District. He also visited Corning Inc., where the launch of the Greater Southern Tier Hub of the Empire State STEM learning Network was announced.

"The STEM work that's being done in this region is preparing students for jobs in the 21st Century," said Dr. King. "I'm excited about what I've seen today. Students here are not just learning from textbooks, but are involved in hands-on learning. The foundation that students are gaining here in science, technology, engineering and math will provide them with the interrelated skills they'll need to be competitive in college and the workforce."

In the evening, Dr. King spoke at a reception hosted by the GST School Boards Association.
