Carvelli elected to BOCES


Former Rome Board of Education member Suzanne Carvelli has been elected to the Madison-Oneida BOCES board to fill the unexpired term of the late Sandra Lockwood of Rome, who died Feb. 25 from injuries in a motor vehicle accident.

School boards in Rome and the other eight local districts served by the Verona-based BOCES voted unanimously Monday to appoint Carvelli to the seat, which she will assume July 1 for a term expiring June 30, 2013, said BOCES clerk Catherine Quinn. The boards also unanimously approved the Madison-Oneida BOCES 2012-13 administrative budget of $2.88 million.

The Rome school board last week approved a resolution to nominate Carvelli for the BOCES seat. Carvelli, of 8275 Northgate Drive, served two full 3-year terms on the Rome school board including two years as president, through the 2005-06 year.

The Madison-Oneida BOCES board has nine members, comprising one representative for each of its nine component school districts, said Quinn, and full terms are for three years.
