Past Board Members

BOCES is an acronym for Board of Cooperative Educational Services. Created by an act of the New York State Legislature in 1948, the BOCES offer services and programs that individual school districts can't operate cost-effectively on their own. Schools for multiply handicapped children, career education, transportation, computer services, staff development programs for teachers and other school personnel are just a few of the more than 100 services Southern Westchester BOCES provides its component districts.

The first Southern Westchester BOCES board members were elected in 1948. These individuals, and those who served with them and after them, helped shape the education of school children and adult learners for more than one-half century
