Itinerant Services

Itinerant Services are provided by BOCES staff who are shared by two or more districts, usually on a Full-Time Equivalent (FTE) basis. This arrangement enables component districts to increase their course offerings without adding full-time teaching positions. The sharing districts are directly billed. Services of a support nature can also be shared and are also included in this category. (BOCES aid is unavailable for support positions and services that are otherwise aided.)

An initial offering of specific personnel is based on assumptions about final requests for the coming year. However, requests for Itinerant Services can occur throughout the year and need not be restricted to the positions on the initial list. Subject and special areas in which itinerant teachers generally are found are listed below.

Purchasing

This service provides leadership and coordination for component school districts, municipalities and counties in cooperative bidding. Representatives of the school districts and agencies work with BOCES personnel to develop standard specifications for necessary items. BOCES then prepares proposals and bids, solicits vendors to bid, requests samples as needed and coordinates the analysis and decision making process for cooperative bids. Savings are generated not only from the thousands of dollars saved, but also from the time saved by the individual participants.

Records Management

This service provides the component districts with consultation and expertise on management of inactive and permanent records resulting in space savings, easy access to records and disaster management. We will assist the districts in making decisions about storage, inventory, digitization, microfilming, records disposal, and records retrieval. This may include central storage of records in our regional support center, in-house microfilming and in-house digitizing of records. Records will be identified, transported, prepared for filming and digitizing, filmed and digitized and entered into an inventory database.
