How do students enroll in a Career and Technical Education program at HFM?
Each year, from November through January, the CTC staff and current students visit sophomore classes in each of the Hamilton, Fulton and Montgomery County schools to share program information with the students.
Following these presentations, the CTC staff organizes visits for each school to bring interested students to view and participate in programs at the Career and Technical Center. Students interested in attending CTC programs meet with their home school counselors and complete the enrollment process by mid-March. Additional requests following this scheduling process are handled on a first-request basis.
Counselors or other school district staff may contact Lorrie Hanifan at (518) 736-4330 or email her at Lhanifan@hfmboces.org for help with enrollment forms.
Child Abuse Hotline Notification
On Jan. 10, 2017, the Board of Regents adopted a regulation requiring school districts in New York to post the child abuse hotline number in highly visible areas of their school buildings and on district or school websites.
If you suspect a child is being abused or maltreated (neglected), report it by calling 1-800-342-3720, a toll-free 24-hour hotline operated by the New York State Office of Children and Family Services. If you believe a child is in immediate danger, call 911 or your local police department. Information about reporting child abuse and maltreatment (neglect) is available online at http://ocfs.ny.gov/main/cps/.
