50th Anniversary Update
MOBOCES is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year and we'll be celebrating this milestone all year. In February, we hosted an alumni panel discussion for Alternative Education High School students. We're now preparing for our 50th Annual Meeting in April, and we will be hosting a meeting of the Tri-County School Boards Institute here on our campus in March. We also have a mini-section on the website about MOBOCES history and the new logo. Stay tuned for more updates, and follow us on Facebook and Twitter to keep up with our #moboces50 campaign.
