After 14 years at the helm at Oneida-Herkimer-Madison BOCES, Superintendent Howard Mettelman is planning his retirement.
Mettleman has served in the position with BOCES since 2004, after serving five years as superintendent at Oriskany. The board approved his retirement last night.
Mettleman has been behind the creation of a number of programs at BOCES, including the Pathways in Technology program, which allows students to earn both their regents and associate's degree from Mohawk Valley Community College.
All of his 45 years in education have been served here in the Mohawk Valley.
“All the accomplishments that certainly I’ve been able to be a part of over the last 14 years at BOCES, really has been not an individual issue, it's always been part of the team,” Mettleman said. “And these are accomplished by team members and by partners in all the sectors of our communities.”
Mettleman’s last day with BOCES will be June 30.
