Itinerant and Related Services
As a cooperative educational service provider, we offer itinerant services to school districts in need of part-time instructors. Itinerants are professionals who provide shared services to typically two or more districts. When a school district is unable to generate a full-time position, they may enter into a share with another district with a similar need for part-time instruction by requesting that TST BOCES initiate a shared itinerant service. TST BOCES serves as the employer and as such coordinates the recruiting, hiring, budgeting, and supervision of the staff person to be shared by the requesting districts.
Itinerant professionals provide services in a variety of ways; some are in different districts on alternating days of the week, and others work in the morning in one district and in the afternoon in another. The terms and conditions for each program are determined by the New York State Education Department.
Itinerant services cannot be provided to teach the core academic subjects (English, math, science, or social studies). Our department currently offers itinerant service CO-SERS to component school districts in the areas of art, English as a Second Language, home and careers/business, music, school counseling and Spanish. If a district has a need for an area that is not presently listed above, another district must enter into the share with the requesting district for BOCES to offer that CO-SER.
