Administrative Services includes the functions of the Board, the District Superintendent, the Assistant Superintendent of Instructional Services, the Assistant Superintendent of Administrative Services and their Support Staff. Dues to state and regional associations (e.g., the Central New York State School Boards’ Association), a portion of campus operations and maintenance and health insurance payments for all eligible BOCES retirees are in the Administrative Services budget.
Specific program administrative costs (e.g., Exceptional Children, Adult Education, Instructional Support Services, Career and Technical Education) are NOT included in these charges. Rented facilities are charged as a separate line on district contracts. Administrative Services also include assistance in superintendent searches, personnel advice and assistance toward the certification of teachers and administrators, regular meetings of regional administrative councils, workshops for component Boards of Education and administrators, development of new BOCES services, the costs of borrowing the budget and information and assistance about Regents and State Education Department initiatives and policies. An important developing objective for Administrative Services is the focus of attention upon local district initiatives to improve pupil performance for all students, and the best method for BOCES staff to assist in achieving that objective.
