Trust, Traction, and Transparency
Welcome to the Mountain BOCES Website!
Mountain BOCES is a cooperative educational service agency covering ten central Rocky Mountain school districts and Colorado Mountain College.  We are now in our 43rd year of providing programs, services, and expertise that are more efficient, more economical, and of higher quality than could be achieved by one district alone.  Our strategic goal is to inspire Trust at all levels of our organization and with all of our partners, to promote Transparency in our fiscal practices and professional activities and interactions, and to focus on getting Traction to accomplish the most important goals--Trust, Traction, and Transparency.
 
We hope you find our site easy to navigate.  If you have any questions or suggestions, please contact our Webmaster.

Lake County Overhauls Its Model
Lake County School District is in the first stages of moving from a traditional academic model to an all-expeditionary learning approach in its elementary and middle schools.  Read about it here.
Kudos to the administration and staff of Lake County for all of your hard work!
Save on Shipping, Spend on Students!

Mountain BOCES is pleased to announce that it has entered into a cost-saving and revenue generating agreement with the Educational Shippers Association (ESA), whose "Save on Delivery Program" is now available to Mountain BOCES members, as well as all school districts in Colorado.  

The program is free and is guaranteed to save districts money the first time it's used. ESA provides professional freight managers to work with district purchasing teams. Through this partnership, BOCES and school districts in Colorado can reduce shipping costs on nearly every order. For example, a Purchase Order value of $75,000 with a vendor freight cost of $7,500 can be shipped through ESA Freight for $1,300, providing a savings of $6,200! Traditional shipping costs can range from 5-15% of the amount of the purchase. Using ESA, districts can save 23% on the shipping of art supplies, 38% on athletic supplies, and 75% on textbooks. Close to 250 districts in 14 states are realizing savings from excessive shipping and handling fees. In 2011, schools saved more than $1.1 million!  And Mountain BOCES will receive 2% of the total shipping cost.  

Mountain BOCES members can start saving immediately by registering at 888.325.8655 or on the ESA website (www.saveondelivery.com/register.html). A representative will work with district staff to determine specific needs, set up an account, and provide a welcome packet and stamps for Purchase Orders. Districts will pay the vendor for product only, and ESA will find the most efficient and cost effective way to ship products.

Congratulations, Yampah!
Congratulations to Principal Leigh McGown and all the Yampah Mountain High School staff and students for "meeting" or "exceeding" all performance indicators on the Alternative Education Campus School Performance Framework 2013!  Great work!
