Message from the District Superintendent

Collaboration has become essential for school success. We are tasked with providing quality educational opportunities to all our students in a time of heightened accountability and a stubborn economy. The challenges are daunting. Yet, opportunities abound—when we work together—to motivate and successfully equip students for their future after high school.

I am pleased to present the 2017-18 HFM BOCES Services Guide, offering district administrators an overview of programs and services available to purchase on a cooperative basis. Celebrating 50 years this spring, HFM BOCES has continually provided innovative and cost-effective solutions that serve students well and advance the mission of our local schools.

The fiscal advantage provided through the aid formula is important, yet even more significant are the benefits that shared capacity brings to our region.

2017-18 HFM BOCES Services Guide

By combining resources, we are able to enhance learning opportunities and develop academic options that help create career and college ready students.

It is our mission and goal to provide our 15 component school districts with the highest quality services and programs at the lowest cost. If you have any specific questions about a service, contact the program administrator associated with that particular service. They are available to provide you with complete information about our BOCES programs.

Our digital services guide dramatically enhances its efficiency and usefulness over a printed version. The digital guide partners with our new website to offer greater accessibility to up-to-date information all year. As we add or refine services to meet your needs, these resources will reflect those changes.

We are proud to provide these services to our schools, supporting a broad student population with a wide range of educational needs. Please let us know how we can better serve you as we build our future together.

Thank you to our Board of Education and Component School Districts for their support.
