This program provides opportunities beyond the traditional classroom to enrich the total learning experience for students in grades K-12.
The program is highly flexible and responsive to individual districts' requests for enrichment opportunities both in the classroom and place-based field trip learning experiences.
For example, while a class is studying the Revolutionary War, students may have the opportunity to participate in a field trip to Washington's Headquarters or Knox Headquarters in Newburgh. To enhance STEM, trips to the Liberty Science Center would be coordinated by OU BOCES. Excursions may also include New York City cultural events and areas of local interest where students are introduced to a variety of art forms including theater and nationally renowned museums.
To supplement classroom-based curricula, OU BOCES will arrange for various programs such as The Museum of the Hudson Highlands to visit classrooms to facilitate presentations on a wide variety of science topics. These classroom curricula expansion opportunities can be tailored for any grade level.
District requests can include a specific field trip destination or in-class program. If you would like suggestions, BOCES will research and make recommendations for topic-related destinations and programs. We will coordinate the enrichment experience from start to finish.
This program expands the opportunities for students to participate in unique educational experiences that enhance the classroom curriculum and support both Common Core and the NYS Standards.
COST: There is no base cost for this program. Districts are charged per individual requests.
