SARATOGA SPRINGS — The Washington-Saratoga-Warren-Hamilton-Essex Board of Cooperative Educational Services (WSWHE BOCES) unveiled its “Future-Focused For All Students 2023-2026 Strategic Plan” earlier this month.

The WSWHE BOCES is responsible for “the oversight of curricular, financial, and other policy decisions,” according to the organization. WSWHE BOCES serves a total of 31 school districts, including Ballston Spa, Schuylerville, and Saratoga Springs.

Among its objectives, the plan seeks to:

• Increase enrollment capacity

• Offer students more work-based learning opportunities

• Celebrate diversity and equity

• Strengthen the Women In Trades initiative

• Enhance employee onboarding

• Provide staff with proper tools and training

• Address short-term facilities needs

• Analyze requirements for transitioning to electric buses

“This plan will be the backbone for what we do as an organization,” said WSWHE BOCES District Superintendent of Schools Dr. Turina Parker. “It will serve as a roadmap for our efforts to connect with each student and customer while enhancing our connections as an organization.”

The plan also states that its implementation will be “one of the largest, and most consequential, undertakings in our BOCES history. This 2023-26 Strategic Plan tasks us with, in essence, reevaluating every WSWHE BOCES decision and action, and ensuring they are in line with our community’s priorities and expectations.”

The plan is available online at: www.wswheboces.org/apps/pages/index.jsp?uREC_ID=2036640&type=d&pREC_ID=2513275
