“Our program is in a position we never dreamed of being in until these grants came out...”

“...People want to know why we didn’t do it sooner.”

  “The Homer Schools have benefited greatly from the grant writing service. The grant writer listened to our vision and led us through the grant writing process.”

  “The STLE grant provided North Syracuse teachers and leaders, and subsequently students, some opportunities that would not (have been) available otherwise,”

“At a time when so many resources are diminishing, it has been critical that we have this funding.”

Did you hear the big news? OCM BOCES played a key role in helping the Solvay Union Free School District secure a five-year, $5.3 million grant to boost student achievement.

Solvay took advantage of the OCM BOCES Grant Writing Services in our Educational Programs division – a service that links districts to a multitude of grant resources and writers.

In this case, OCM BOCES secured the services of Fairport grant writer Chris Semler, who worked closely with the Solvay leadership team to secure a federal 21st Century Learning Centers grant.

“This is a huge boost for us,” Solvay Superintendent Lawrence Wright said. “We will be able to do some really creative and innovative things to connect with families and help students be successful.”

The grant will have a significant impact in a district with 1,500 students and a $32.4 million budget. It will mostly provide before- and after-school programs with the help of several community partners, including OCM BOCES.

Programs include the restoration of a summer “smart” camp that focuses on math and literacy; before- and after-school childcare; after-school academic support for struggling students; a variety of sports, music and other recreational activities; mental-health services for those in need; and continued training for teachers to make better connections between school and home.

“This grant moves us in the direction of being a true community school,” Wright said.
