The local Academic Decathlon is coordinated by Onondaga-Cortland-Madison BOCES. Students in grades 9 - 12 comprise teams of three "A" students (Honors), three "B" students (Scholastic), and three "C" students (Varsity). The students will take objective tests in art, music, language and literature, science, social science, mathematics, and economics. They will also participate in a "Super Quiz", team oral relay conducted before an audience.
The Central New York Leadership Development Program (CNYLDP) is designed to complement and integrate ongoing professional development initiatives while providing a sustained focus on leadership development. There are three levels of the program (teacher leadership, building leadership, district leadership) that can meet the needs of educators in your district.
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.
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. The terms and conditions for each program are determined by the New York State Department of Education.
