BOCES (Board of Cooperative Educational Services) provides shared educational programs and services to two or more school districts throughout the State of New York. The Dutchess County BOCES serves 13 districts. The educational programs mostly focus on Career and Technical classes.
By 2022, BOCES in Poughkeepsie will be consolidating all its programs under one campus to be able to serve more students and enhance programs. The buildings will be upgraded and expanded to meet those needs.
