13 Reasons Why Resources

All meetings will be located at OCM BOCES Main Campus, Liverpool.

  • Counselor Round Tables
    These round tables provide professional development on topics that are pertinent to K-12 school counselors. A time for networking will be provided at the end of each round table. Bring your best practices and “Need to Know” items and you will come away with a plethora of ideas for your School Counseling Program.
