The term “BOCES” stands for Board of Cooperative Educational Services. BOCES is a regional educational service provider in New York State which functions as an extension of local school districts. BOCES is able to provide services that school districts may be too small to offer on their own or that would be more economical to offer collaboratively and share costs with other districts.
The function of a BOCES is to provide shared services to the component school districts in a manner that is cost-effective, efficient, and fosters equity for students. The Commissioner of Education has also charged the BOCES with providing leadership and support in developing the capacity of local schools to enable students to meet both the performance requirements of the New York State Learning Standards and the new graduation requirements. Typically, BOCES provides special education, career and technical education, adult education, professional development, instructional services, educational technology, library services and a number of management services for component school districts.
The Practical Nurse program can provide many opportunities for employment: hospitals, nursing homes, clinics, physicians’ offices or home health agencies.
