Orange-Ulster BOCES Reopening Plan

The Orange-Ulster BOCES Reopening Task Force and building level teams have developed plans for in-person and remote learning in accordance with guidance from the Center for Disease Control (CDC), the New York State Department of Health and the New York State Education Department.

The framework of our plan is to open all Special Education Programs through a full in-person model. Career and Technical Education Programs will operate through a hybrid model where students will receive in-person and remote instruction on an alternating day (A/B) schedule. The Task Force has also developed fully remote models in the event conditions change.

The OU BOCES full reopening plan has been submitted to the State Education Department and the NYS Department of Health.
