School Improvement

School Improvement Services are based on New York State Education Department (NYSED) initiatives. These services are designed to assist and support school districts in planning for and implementing change by supporting instructional priorities, including inquiry team support, assessment literacy, data analysis, changes in the NYS testing system, curriculum development, and comprehensive district planning.

School Improvement Services include multi-district activities designed to improve achievement including:

  • Shared outside consultants for staff development and follow-up coordinated through BOCES.
  • Substitute reimbursement for shared activities coordinated through BOCES.

In this service, the ongoing process of school redesign and reform is supported through local and regional activities as well as material and technical assistance.

  • Data Literacy & Coaching
