The Office of Communications & Public Relations is comprised of communications professionals, writers, videographers and graphic designers who provide a wide range of services to school districts throughout the Broome-Tioga BOCES region and neighboring counties.
Because every school district is different, we plan and implement customized communications programs and development strategies and assist with a wide range of special projects to fit each district’s needs and budget.
