All BOCES instructional programs and offices are closed
Due to an order issued by Gov. Andrew Cuomo, all K-12 schools will remain closed through the rest of the academic year. A decision regarding summer school is pending. Instruction will continue to be provided remotely. 
The closure order is part of a proactive effort to limit exposure to the Coronavirus. All BOCES offices will also remain closed. Updated information will be posted in this location as it becomes available. 
 
All schools are prepared to provide student meals (two per day per student) at designated pick-up locations throughout the county. You do not have to go to the pick-up site at your school; any site will serve you. To view a list of those locations, click here for Broome County schools,  click here for Tioga County schools.  
 
Latest updates: Governor says key data points are trending downward, but cautions reopening will be gradual to prevent infection rates from rising again. To read district superintendent's staff briefing, click here.

Coronavirus information, resources and updates

Broome-Tioga BOCES, working with our component school districts, is closely monitoring this fluid situation, following guidance from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH), Broome County Health Department and the New York State Education Department.
 
With the safety of our students and staff foremost in mind, all of our schools are taking every precaution to ensure safe working and learning environments. Each of our districts have infective disease protocols in place and are making extra effort to minimize the spread of all viruses, including the new COVID-19, by stepping up cleaning and disinfecting procedures throughout our school facilities. 
 
It is important that residents who have special concerns or questions about the Coronavirus outbreak seek out and consult credible sources, avoiding those where rumor and uninformed opinions are frequently shared. It is for that reason that this webpage has been created: to ensure up-to-date and accurate information about a very important health issue.
