Mission:
  • Providing regional students and educators access to high-quality learning opportunities through the use of internet-based technologies.

Our Service will:
  • provide districts with the support and training required to locate appropriate educational video conferencing opportunities, plan implementation strategies, and support integration of distance and online learning across the curriculum.
  • assist districts in the design, development, management, and evaluation of distance, online, or blended learning spaces and technologies.
  • represent the GST region at applicable regional, state, and/or national events and conferences.
  • operate within the NYS-approved COSER guidelines for both Online (Virtual) Learning and Distance Learning.

Structure:
  • Distance and Online Learning Support Services are available under GST BOCES Cooperative Service (COSER) agreement 430. Schools may currently choose to participate in Distance Learning (430.000/430.001) and/or Online Learning (430.007/430.008) services independently of one another.

    This program, by NYS COSER definition, operates from September through June.
