Strategic Focus

Working with the Superintendent’s, we have established the following areas to begin working on in anticipation of moving forward by the 2020-2021 school year. The areas are divided into four essential components:


Special Education: It is the intent of the BOCES to maintain and improve quality services for AU and Non-Au members. The refinement of personnel needs and how to bear the cost of services across the BOCES will be determined as we research next steps with all school systems.
