  • Video brings Sprain Brook Academy students' story to Albany

    Our students are our best advocates when we seek to share the SWBOCES story with our state representatives, as we did on Advocacy Day in Albany on Feb. 27.
     
    The impact of the Sprain Brook Academy, in partnership with the Westchester County Department of Correction, is not an easy story to tell, though. With the use of video, however, we were able to "bring" two young men from the program to the state capitol to share the impact SWBOCES has made in helping put their lives on a better path. Meet Messiah and James.
