  • HOLIDAY DONATIONS

    The BOCES Special Education Department's Occupational Therapists and Physical Therapists held a food drive on December 4th in lieu of a holiday party or gift exchange. At their December meeting, staff members collected nonperishable food and $85 for each of the following food pantries: Heuvelton, Hopkinton, and North Lawrence. Staff members chose the pantries because they receive minimal other supports and because many of their students are from those three areas.

  •  WHAT IS BOCES SURPLUS?

    WHAT IS BOCES SURPLUS?

    Lately, our BOCES has been responding to questions about BOCES Surplus. We thought the following points may be helpful for our community members to know. BOCES Surplus is money that was not spent during the year. As such, it is returned to the component school districts. BOCES Surplus is a mandated accounting process that protects school districts and taxpayers because excess funds are always returned. Could you imagine if your village/town/county returned some of your taxes at the end of each year?
