The Oswego County Board of Cooperative Educational Services has announced a change to its name, becoming the Center for Instruction, Technology & Innovation (CiTi).
The launch of the new name, effective immediately, is part of a rebranding effort at the end of a nearly completed campus renovation project. The name change comes after nearly two years of research and data collection, which included surveys of community members, staff, parents, students and Oswego County leadership, a focus group and Board of Education approval in mid-June.
According to CiTi District Superintendent Christopher Todd, the change reflects the organization’s commitment to meeting the ever-changing needs of its educational partners while embracing innovation and creativity.
Sarah McCrobie, public relations assistant for CiTi, said the name and logo change are new but the school is still part of the BOCES network.
The Oswego County BOCES was founded in 1949. Today, CiTi serves a student population of about 22,000 and provides a diverse array of student programs and more than 75 cooperative educational services.
The organization has evolved to include a focus on preparing students for their role in a global economy while collaborating with districts to close gaps in student achievement.
