BOCES Efficiency Study: Identifying Options for the Future
St. Lawrence-Lewis BOCES recently commissioned a study to identify options for the future of our technology, school improvement and special education services. This study provides recommendations which BOCES leadership is in the process of evaluating, and the implementation of these recommendations will be aimed at maximizing the value of our services. The foundation of the study is 10 cultural attributes that guide BOCES operations.
