A new year and a new tagline: 'creating opportunities for growth'

Herkimer BOCES logo with tagline of creating opportunities for growth


As we make our way through the first month of the New Year, we are excited to share the new tagline for our Herkimer-Fulton-Hamilton-Otsego BOCES logo that has been under development for over a year. Our former tagline, “Learning for Life,” was part of a statewide BOCES theme at one point, so we wanted something that uniquely embodies our mission. This new tagline – developed through many discussions on what Herkimer BOCES is all about – represents what staff working in many programs and departments said in many different ways.

What is at the heart of everything we do at Herkimer BOCES? We create opportunities for growth.

This includes growth in the students who attend our programs as well as the students in the entire region. Growth is also at the heart of the programs we develop and offer to meet the needs of our community. Herkimer BOCES provides professional development of the staff at BOCES – as well as staff across the region – and this is another form of growth that Herkimer BOCES promotes.

We look forward to continuing our work and creating opportunities for growth with all stakeholders.
