  • Sixth-graders were the first to commit to their own set of values and strategies

    Irvington program's 6th graders take lead on class charter

    A group of sixth-graders was the first class at SWBOCES's Irvington program to follow the lead of their teachers and complete a charter of their own.

    The colorful presentation they created together details the various positive behaviors to which they committed themselves – Listen Actively, Be Open-Minded, and Recognize Others When They Are Doing a Good Job. 

    "As leaders and educators, we were just so impressed with the initiative and thoughtfulness of these students,” Principal Alberta Grant-Johnson said.

    President Biden replies to SWBOCES student's letter calling for unity

    After penning a letter to numerous public figures and media outlets, Jason Wellington, an eighth-grader at Southern Westchester BOCES’ Irvington High School location, this week learned a lesson in patience and received words of encouragement from an unexpected source. “I never got anything back until Tuesday, when I got a letter from the White House,” Jason said.

    “I was giving up on it," he added, "but then my heart kept telling me don’t do that because it may take a while."

The Principal's Desk

 I am delighted to continue serving as principal of the SWBOCES middle school and high school grades 6-12 TSP Programs located in Irvington High School.  The Irvington TSP team is excited to continue and to expand partnerships with families, sending districts and with the Irvington School district. Our programs are designed to provide academic and social/emotional support to students and to help them develop the necessary skills needed to meet their potential while working towards achieving commencement.

This year we have a lot of new and returning students in our grades 6-12 (TSP) Therapeutic Support Program. Having students back in school full-time this past year has been an adjustment and a welcome change. It has been so wonderful to get back into a routine and sense of normalcy.  The Irvington TSP team is excited to continue and to expand partnerships with families, sending districts and with the Irvington School district. Our programs are designed to provide academic and social/emotional support to students and to help them develop the necessary skills needed to meet their potential while working towards achieving commencement. 

The program specializes in meeting each student where he or she is; providing a nurturing, welcoming, inclusive school community and helping all students develop the strategies and tools that will enable them to grow emotionally and academically so that they may meet success in their post-secondary lives. Because of our lower student-to-staff ratios of 12:1:1, 8:1:1 (gr.7) and 8:1:2 (gr. 6) instruction may be individualized and/or modified to meet the needs of each student. All students work towards a Regents Diploma and may be eligible to earn an Advanced Regents Diploma, Local Diploma and/or a CDOS Credential. Students may also have the opportunity to enroll in mainstream classes and/or activities once they have demonstrated the capacity to independently and successfully navigate in a general education setting.

I continue to be grateful to have the privilege of working with each and every student and to partner with families, sending districts and the Irvington School District so that all students have the opportunity to achieve success. My door is always open to address any questions or concerns or to hear your input.

Sincerely,

Alberta Grant-Johnson, Principal
