School Development Services

The School Improvement Service is designed to support local school district efforts in the areas of professional development, curriculum development, instructional design, and school planning/organization. Using these four areas as vehicles for school improvement, the focus of the service is on assisting districts to implement NYSED initiatives, by providing evidence-based staff development programs. 

Each participating district is part of a base service that provides coordination of regional and district specific activities to support:

  • Technical assistance for district and building planning
  • Training in research-based instructional models
  • Awareness of, and the coordination of/planning for, state and federal initiatives
  • Professional development opportunities in support of district identified needs
  • Curriculum mapping, alignment, and development

Districts that purchase School Improvement and Data Analysis get both services for the same base fee. 

WSWHE BOCES is an approved provider of the NYSED required DASA Certification Training.

Cancellations Due to Weather

If both the Myers Education Center in Saratoga Springs and the Southern Adirondack Education Center (SAEC) in Hudson Falls are closed, workshops at the Ballard Road Conference Center will be cancelled as well. If there are school delays, the workshops will run as scheduled, but participants are urged to use their professional judgment in terms of their own attendance.
