Services Provided

Every BOCES is a little different, depending on the needs of the local school districts. For BOCES to offer a service it must be requested by two or more component districts and be approved by the commissioner of education according to need and practicality in a regional context. It will then be considered a Co-Ser (Cooperative Service) agreement.


  A large percentage of BOCES programs are instructional or direct instruction in classroom settings:

-          instruction services and professional development

-          career and technical programs for high school students

-          related services for students with disabilities

-          literacy programs and employment training for adults


• The remaining programs are non-instructional “support services” which help school districts reduce or contain costs. This permits some districts’ resources to directly serve students. Examples include:

–     management services

–     regional information centers

–     state networks
