General Itinerant Services

Our districts may share the services of teaching staff for approved academic subjects, to fill part-time needs and/or to conduct low enrollment classes.

Specialized itinerant services and academic itinerants are provided to districts as a shared service, on a half-day or full-day basis. (Services provided exclusively to disabled students are not BOCES-aidable.)

Itinerant staff operate as regular members of the component school faculty and work under local district supervision, follow local district school calendars and attend school meetings. The minimum request for itinerant services is one day, with additional time in half-day increments. Itinerant services can be provided on a shared services basis, up to four days per week (.8 FTE) but are not BOCES-aidable above three days per week (.6 FTE).
