Professional Development Available


There are many professional development programs being offered through ESP and BOCES 4 Science.

The Elementary Science Program (ESP) has provided high quality, cost-effective services to New York State school districts for more than 50 years. In anticipation of the new New York State Science Learning Standards (NYSSLS) implementation, Monroe 2–Orleans BOCES has partnered with three other BOCES (Monroe 1, Genesee Valley, and Wayne Finger Lakes BOCES) to develop a new science program called BOCES 4 Science.

ESP services, including professional development, classroom lessons in local districts, and elementary and intermediate science curricular units, will continue to be provided. Over time, the ESP units will transition to the BOCES 4 Science units.

All trainings are available at no cost for districts that lease ESP/BOCES 4 Science units. Training sessions are also open to districts that do not use Monroe 2–Orleans BOCES services; please call for session cost and further information.
