Senator James Seward has secured a special $50,000 state grant to support the Herkimer-BOCES AIM Program.

AIM, or Achievement, Inspiration, Motivation, is a school based behavioral program operated by Herkimer-Fulton-Hamilton-Otsego BOCES in collaboration with Kids Oneida

The program supports students with complex behavioral health needs that are not easily managed in a school environment.

“Our schools play such a crucial role in shaping not only minds but lives,” said Seward.  “The Herkimer BOCES AIM program is a pioneering initiative that supports students as they work through challenges in the classroom and at home.  This specially designed program is a life changer that benefits young people, their families, and the entire community.  The partnership between Herkimer BOCES and Kids Oneida has developed a true model that I am pleased to support.”

The AIM program operates at the Pathways Academy at the Remington Education Complex in Ilion and serves middle school students.
