Tiered Services Model

Tiered Services Model


In order to increase overall effectiveness and accountability and to empower decision making at the district level, Mountain BOCES has developed a Tiered Services Model that offers member school districts a variety of options from which to choose the programs and services that best suit their needs.

Administrative Services involve leadership and management of the organization, excluding costs for programs and services.


Universal Services are those identified by the Owners and determined by the Board of Directors as necessary or desirable for use by all member districts.  They are funded through a proportionate share model.


Program Services are those which Mountain BOCES designs and administers for the benefit of one or more districts and for which participation is voluntary and funded on the basis of rate of participation.


Contract Services are also voluntary services through which districts can contract for specialized personnel, for whose services districts are billed based on a daily rate for the various positions.
