Dear GST BOCES Community:
In November of 2021, the initial work on developing an organization-wide strategic plan began. Since this time, several stakeholder groups have worked together extensively to finalize a plan for our future, and ultimately, put it to action. It is vital to have shared goals and focus areas in order to guide our collective work.
As we embark on another promising new year, our next steps are crucial to keeping the strategic plan alive. We will continue to work with Education Elements, the company that guided our development. Our leaders will work to determine how to address the focus areas in all departments and intricate work for all of us will be ongoing, in order to ensure we are always guided by these overarching ideals.
Through the guidance this plan provides, we will continue to support students, area school districts, businesses and the community as a whole. Our overall mission to engage students in the work that will give them the preparation necessary to be successful in their future endeavors, is at the forefront of all we do at the Greater Southern Tier BOCES.
In excitement for the future,
District Superintendent Greater Southern Tier BOCES
