OCM BOCES appoints DiBlasi as new assistant superintendent for administration

The Onondaga-Cortland-Madison Board of Cooperative Educational Services (OCM BOCES) announced it has appointed Andrew J. DiBlasi as its new assistant superintendent for administration.

DiBlasi, an 18-year school business official, will replace Deb Ayers, who is retiring in October after 17 years of service to the organization. The OCM BOCES board of education voted unanimously for DiBlasi’s appointment at its monthly meeting on Aug. 17. He will start in the position on Oct. 2, OCM BOCES said in a news release.

DiBlasi has spent the past 16 years as the assistant superintendent for business for the Red Creek Central School District. Encompassing portions of Wayne and Cayuga counties, Red Creek is a “high-need, high-performing district located along the shore of Lake Ontario,” the release stated.

DiBlasi said the challenge of working for a larger educational institution, as well as the opportunity to have an impact on a greater number of students, appealed to him.

“Red Creek is a great district,” he said in the release. “It wasn’t an easy decision to leave, but a coveted position within such a highly respected organization was worth the risk associated with change.”

An Oswego native, DiBlasi received his bachelor’s degree in business administration from the University of Delaware. He later returned to Oswego and earned his bachelor’s degree in accounting and his MBA from SUNY Oswego. Later, he received a certificate of advanced study in school business administration from SUNY Brockport. Prior to joining the administrative staff at Red Creek, DiBlasi worked for the Pulaski Academy & Central School District, PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP, and the Buffalo Sabres professional ice hockey team.

OCM BOCES says it serves 23 school districts in three counties and has a $132 million budget.
