The Board Of Cooperative Educational Services of Nassau County (Nassau BOCES) serves the 56 school districts of Nassau County, Long Island, by providing cost-effective shared services, including career training for high school students and adults, special education, alternative schools, technology education, and teacher training, as well as dozens of programs to expand educational opportunity and help districts operate more efficiently. Our agency, which was created in 1967, is the youngest - and the largest - of the 37 BOCES in New York state. All of the BOCES are made possible by legislation passed in 1948. Did you know that Nassau BOCES is guided by a nine-member Board, elected by the members of the Boards of Education in our 56 component districts? We have nearly three dozen locations, with sites ranging from large facilities, such as Barry Tech in Westbury, to a cluster of classrooms in a local school? We offer approximately 100 different programs and services, which change constantly in response to school-district needs?
