Monroe 2-Orleans BOCES Instructional Programs

The Monroe 2-Orleans BOCES Office for Instructional Programs delivers programs and services to meet a variety of needs of individuals’ birth through adulthood. A wide range of educational opportunities is offered to expand and enrich learning for all. Programs encompassed within the Office for Instructional Programs include:  

Career and Technical Education (CTE)
Offers high school students an opportunity to explore any of the number of different career and technical fields. Relying heavily on school-based and work-based applied learning, students learn the skills they need for immediate employment or prepare for a career that requires further education.

Center for Workforce Development (CWD) 
CWD provides adult education and career training programs. CWD offers high-technology career training that is affordable, convenient, short-term and targeted to the adult learner. Also offered through CWD is a high school equivalency course designed for individuals 18 or older who want to earn a General Educational Development (GED) diploma.

Department for Exceptional Children
Provides programs to meet the needs of students with a variety of abilities, which cannot be completely addressed by their local school districts. The Department for Exceptional Children encompasses four divisions:

Regional Summer School
This provides instructional support to students in participating districts by extending their study to the summer months. It was designed to meet the needs of students in grades 7-12 who require an alternative learning environment.  

Westside Junior/Senior High Academy
Westside Jr./Sr. High Academy is an alternative junior/senior high school (grades 7-12) designed to meet the needs of students who have experienced academic, behavioral or emotional difficulties in their home districts – students who have been unsuccessful in the larger school setting.
