Summer Camp Materials


We hope you enjoy these pictures from our SAANYS Summer Camps which were held in three locations, Capital Region, Long Island and Rochester, during July and August at Cap Region, Nassau County and Monroe II BOCES respectively.
Over 240 school leaders from around the state delved into learning related to student mental health, culturally responsive schools, and technology integration. Our lead presenters included:

Dr. John Kelly, President of the National Association of School Psychologists
David Rossetti, Chief Officer of Behavioral Health Services, Northern Rivers Family of Services
Rebecca Carman, Director of Policy and Community Development, Shenendehowa CSD
Dr. Kristen Wilcox, Nancy Andress and Rebecca Shea of NY Kids
Dr. Joseph Fantigrossi, PreK-12 Intervention Coordinator for Lyons CSD
Jay Roscup, Grants Administrator for Wayne County Schools Consortium
Leah McConaughey and Paul Vassak of Apple
Karen Bronson, SAANYS Director of Professional Development, facilitated the workshops and engaged the attendees in discussion around TedTalks related to the days’ topics.
