Dutchess BOCES Career and Technical Institute (May 13, 2011)
Principal Mitchell Shron discusses the Dutchess Board of Cooperative Education Services (BOCES, pronounced “BOH-sees”), a cost-effective education solution unique to New York State. BOCES programs provide career and technical education, special and alternative education, and professional development. The Career and Technical Institute (CTI) is for students, mainly in 11th and 12th grades, to learn occupations that have a strong job potential, such as plumbing, welding, auto mechanics, electrical programs, communication technology, and health. After graduation, students are prepared to enter the work force or to attend college.
