Student Support Services
The Cattaraugus Allegany BOCES Community Schools Cooperative Service (CoSer) represents a strategy to organize resources so that academics, social and emotional needs, and medical and dental services and supports are integrated into the fabrics of schools. This work helps to remove obstacles to learning and serve the needs of the whole child so teachers are free to teach and students are ready to learn.
The community schools strategy focuses on four key components; collaborative leadership, expanded learning opportunities, integrated student supports and services, and family engagement. Overall, the goal of the strategy is to strengthen schools, improve student learning, create stronger families and healthier communities.
The website below is a continued collaboration of member districts and community partnerships to align resources for our school's community members.
