Title: Madison-Oneida BOCES

Madison-Oneida BOCES
  • Enabling Learners to Excel

Mission Statement The Madison-Oneida BOCES
cooperatively and responsibly provides
educationally focused programs and services
which enable learners to excel.
  • BOCES, or the Board of Cooperative Educational
    Services, was created by the New York State
    Legislature in 1948 to provide shared educational
    and support services to local school districts.
  • Madison-Oneida BOCES was created in 1968 by
    joining two neighboring BOCES. Since then,
    Madison-Oneida BOCES has remained true to its
    commitment of providing cost-effective,
    educationally-focused programs that allow school
    districts to conserve resources while expanding
    opportunities for students.

  • BOCES services are created when two or more
    school districts decide they have similar needs
    that can be met by a shared program. BOCES helps
    school districts by providing opportunities to
    pool resources and share costs. This economical
    approach allows districts to provide students
    with high-quality programs and services schools
    might not otherwise be able to afford.

  • As each districts or BOCES governing body,
    local boards of education are responsible for
    deciding which BOCES services are needed.
    However, BOCES employees work closely with school
    administrators and staff members to develop,
    deliver and refine services.

  • The Madison-Oneida BOCES is an organization that
    places high value on, and is defined by, its
    ability to productively partner with
    participants, to achieve measurable results for
    those it serves, to make optimal use of available
    resources, and to respond proactively to the
    needs of customers.
  • A cornerstone of the BOCES operations is
    flexibility. Madison-Oneida BOCES is simply a
    reflection of the current needs of its districts.
    Programs and services are designed in
    collaboration with participants, and the lifespan
    of a BOCES service is only as long as
    participating districts needs exist.
