Contract/Personnel Data Analysis

The availability of data is valuable to school districts in contract negotiations or making long-term decisions. A team of Ulster BOCES experts can assist school districts in the collection, analysis, and reporting of various data relevant to contracts, financial trends, and residential construction.
