Welcome to Educational Programs

The Educational Departments goal is to support all of the component districts with staffing and instruction.

Our Programs Include

CNY Leadership Development

The Central New York Leadership Development Program (CNYLDP) is designed to complement and integrate ongoing professional development initiatives while providing a sustained focus on teacher leadership development.


Researchers for the past two decades have highlighted the importance that instructional leadership provides for positive student outcomes. Traditionally appointed leaders, principals and assistant principals cannot carry the load themselves. Therefore, school administrators frequently look to department leaders and other teacher leaders to also provide increased instructional leadership. Successful schools frequently highlight the impact that collective vision and efforts had on their success.

Grant Writing Services

We understand a school districts need help to identify grant opportunities they may qualify for and can help by saving time in your already packed grant writing schedules. Our staff is dedicated to supporting our component districts in finding these much needed funding opportunities.

Grant Writing Services

For families who elect to educate their child(ren) at home, the Home Instruction service provides participating districts and parents support throughout the year with providing clear expectations and regular communication to ensure compliance.

Itinerant Services

Itinerant staff members are professionals who provide shared services to two or more districts. BOCES serves as the employer and as such coordinates the recruiting, hiring, budgeting, and supervision of the staff person to be shared by the requesting districts.

Regional Summer School

The purpose of the OCM BOCES Summer School Program is to offer students in grades 7 to 12 who have failed a course or Regents examination an additional opportunity to successfully complete it.
