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.
