Alternative Education

 

BOCES operates full-day and/or half-day programs for general-education students who have been identified as having special needs not being met in school district programs.  Programs may include academics, vocational skills, work-study, specialized activities or a combination of these.  The BOCES Report Card includes alternative education program enrollment and outcome data for students in grades 5 through 8, as well as students in programs leading to high school diplomas or high school equivalency diplomas.  Data Source: BOCES Survey

Alternative Education Outcomes *

*Data from SED believed to be inaccurate due to technology problems

 

The objective of the alternative education program is to retain students until they graduate or return to a regular school setting.  Students counted as leaving programs may have done so for a variety of reasons including relocation, medical problems, childcare, incarceration or entering other education programs.  Data Source: BOCES Survey

Adult Basic Education

Based on data reported for the National Reporting System (NRS) for adult education programs, enrollment in adult basic education programs for 2005-2006 was 1,482.

 

Educational Gain

Under the NRS, educational gain is the primary goal for students in adult beginning/intermediate programs, adult secondary (low) programs, and in English for speakers of other languages programs.   Students are counted as achieving educational gain if they exceed established reference points in their standardized test scores between enrollment and re-testing.

Other Outcomes (2003-04 through 2005-06)

The following outcome measures are consistent with the National Reporting System (NRS) for adult education.  Students in adult secondary (high) programs are considered to have a primary goal of obtaining a secondary or high school equivalency diploma.  For all other outcomes, the student achievements correlate to the students indicating those goals at intake.

Special Education Enrollment and Tuition

 

When placing students, districts select among classrooms with different student/staff ratios consistent with each student’s Individualized Education Program (IEP).  The following are four of the alternatives:

 

12 students per teacher plus two paraprofessionals (12:1:2)                12 students per teacher plus one paraprofessional (12:1:1)

9 students per teacher plus three paraprofessionals (9:1:3)                  9 students per teacher plus two paraprofessionals (9:1:2)

8 students per teacher plus three paraprofessionals (8:1:3)                  8 students per teacher plus two paraprofessionals (8:1:2)

8 students per teacher plus one paraprofessional (8:1:1)                      6 students per teacher plus two paraprofessionals (6:1:2)

4 students per teacher plus 2 paraprofessionals (4:1:2)

 

An addendum of enrollment and tuition information will be attached to this report if this BOCES provides other options of student/staff ratios.

 

Tuition rates exclude the costs of related services, preschool and summer school programs.  BOCES with multiple tuition rates for a program have calculated an average rate.  Data source: 602 Report

 School Library Systems LogoSchool Library Systems (SLS)

 

School Library Systems are state-aided programs set forth in Education Law and regulations of the Commissioner of Education. Each BOCES acts as the educational agency that sponsors the program to provide vital library and information resources to public and nonpublic schools. Each system operates under an approved long range plan of service. Some of the key functions of SLS are: to provide leadership and training through professional development activities; enrich the NYS Learning Standards by providing information literacy awareness and skills; facilitate resource-sharing among its member school libraries; promote advances in technology for information storage and retrieval; focus on cooperative collection development of member school library materials; address the information needs of special client groups; and participate in regional library issues with the public, academic, special and other school libraries. Students, teachers and administrators in each BOCES service area benefit from the programs and services of the school library system.  Data Source: SLS Annual Report
