Empowering Innovative Learning
The Mountain Board of Cooperative Educational Services collaborates with member and non-member organizations to leverage and maximize resources and talents in order to provide innovative, high quality programs and services that promote safety and support learning and growth for students, staff, families, and community.
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 in our 44th 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.
