BOCES 4 Science is a collaborative effort between the BOCES in the Mid-Western New York State region. It is a science program service developed through a partnership between Monroe 2-Orleans BOCES, Monroe #1 BOCES, Wayne-Finger Lakes BOCES, and the Genesee Valley Education Partnership BOCES.
Mary Thomas, science teacher and acting director, of the BOCES 2 Elementary Science Program (ESP) said, “It is so gratifying to have won this award. Our collaborative group has worked very hard over the last several years to create a new science program of which BOCES 4 Science could be proud. These science units go across New York State and provide best practice instruction for K- 5 students. It is quite a feat to have scored well on the NYS STEM Quality Rubric and our whole team feels tremendously honored.”
