As former Director of Technology and Information Services at Long Beach Public Schools from 1999-2011, Michel Richez’s responsibilities included overseeing instructional and administrative technology, telecommunications, security systems, and NYS and Federal assessment reports.

A 1989 graduate of the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, and computer programmer for ABR Corporation from 1990 – 1995, Andrew Brooks brought a wealth of expertise and experience to OSC when he joined the company in December, 1995. He quickly proved to be an asset to the company, assisting in the conversion of the FAQSS application software from DOS to Windows. His intimate knowledge of the FAQSS software, problem solving and leadership abilities enabled Andrew to assume responsibilities as Senior Developer. In that capacity, Andrew supervises the Computer Programming Division, as well as the Help Desk. Andrew assisted in the isolation of Image Mark Recognition (IMR) engine for the 2010 Census and is currently assisting in the development of EASE (Educational Assessment Scoring Environment), OSC’s proprietary electronic scoring technology.
Rachel Koenke began her employment at OSC in 1995 as a data entry clerk, while still a student at Hofstra University. As the company expanded, so did Rachel’s responsibilities. Her people skills and clear understanding of the inner working of the software enabled Rachel to move easily between the technical and customer service departments, and made her a valuable asset at OSC. Rachel handles every task with the professionalism our clients need and the personal attention they deserve.
