About Us

About Us photo of front of building
  • The Board of Cooperative Educational Services (BOCES) in New York State was established in 1948 to provide cost-effective shared educational programs and services to school districts. Now, 70 years later, the goal remains the same, but has evolved to include a focus on preparing students for their role in a global economy while collaborating with districts to close gaps in student achievement.

    Each school day, the programs and services we provide impact students that attend our nine Oswego County School Districts, as well as students and schools outside of Oswego County. We not only provide outstanding educational experiences, but also offer cost-effective cooperative services and programs to the districts themselves.

    In addition to our educational programs, our many services bring cultural experiences to the local schools, educators' professional learning opportunities and the latest in technology to their students. 

    We also strive to enhance the lives of our residents by providing adult education offerings, such as High School Equivalency (GED), continuing education, enrichment classes and adult literacy lessons.

    Build Your Future - is our mission.
