College Profile: Sullivan County BOCES-Practical Nursing Program
BOCES stands for Board of Cooperative Educational Services. The Sullivan County BOCES is one of 38 such organizations statewide created by the legislature in 1948 to provide shared services to school districts. The Sullivan County BOCES consists of eight school districts; and, by student population, is the second smallest in New York State.
The mission of Sullivan County BOCES is to increase student performance in all component districts and communities. The Sullivan County Board of Cooperative Educational Services will accomplish this mission through leadership, cooperative services, and collaborative efforts in an economic and efficient manner.
BOCES services are created when two or more school districts decide they have similar needs that can be met by a shared program. BOCES helps school districts save money by providing opportunities to pool resources and share costs. Sharing is a very economical way for districts to provide programs and services that they might not be able to afford otherwise. It is more efficient and less costly to operate one central service instead of having separate programs in each school district. However, BOCES services are often customized, offering districts the flexibility to meet their individual needs.
Because BOCES services are shared by two or more school districts, they cost much less than if districts provided the services on their own. Districts pool their resources, and share the savings. In addition, New York State gives a financial incentive to participate in shared services by offering BOCES state aid for BOCES services.
With the exception of an administrative charge based on each school district’s size, districts pay only for BOCES services they use. BOCES expenses are incorporated into each district’s annual budget. State aid helps to offset some of the expenses, while the state or federal government directly funds others. BOCES has no taxing authority.
Each BOCES is governed by a Board of Education made up of representatives from the component school districts. The Board members are elected by the Boards of Education of the component districts. The Sullivan County BOCES Board has nine members, one from each of the eight districts, and a second Board member from Fallsburg.
Sullivan County BOCES’ campus consists of four buildings, including a Rubin Pollack Educational Center, St. John Street Educational Center, Youngsville School, and the Administrative Offices.
