Plan of Service

On April 26, 2016, we received official approval from DLD that our five-year Plan of Service for 2016 - 2021 was approved.  See below for the Plan as both Word and pdf documents.

Mission Statement & Bylaws

Annual Survey 2018-19

Annual Survey questions for 2018-19 are based on the 2016-2021 Plan of Service. These included asking for responses about how WSWHE BOCES SLS is currently meeting areas in the PoS, as well as areas of need in the future. The purpose was to target areas in which we need to improve, and to aid in planning areas for the next Plan of Service.
