BH-BL is among other area school districts that collaborate with Capital Region BOCES to offer high school students the opportunity to enroll in 1- and 2-year hands-on programs in such areas of study as automotives, building trades, cosmetology, criminal justice, culinary arts, electrical trades, health careers, media design, and welding and fabrication, to name a few.
Often times students enrolled in these programs also participate in internships that may lead to future employment or further education within career trades.
As middle-skill and trade career demands increase, so do the number of students enrolling in related programming. This coming school year, programs and courses located at the current Career and Technical School (Albany Campus) and the Maywood School , in which many BH-BL students are enrolled, are moving to a new, state-of-the building at 925 Watervliet-Shaker Road in Albany.
As CapRegBOCES prepares to open its new school in September, it will also hold a vote on Tuesday, Aug. 9 to sell the two other vacant buildings. Voters residing with the Capital Region BOCES component districts (this includes BH-BL residents) will have the opportunity to vote on the buildings sale proposition.
