Mountain BOCES

Through collaboration, partnership and extended networks, we provide services and create opportunities that support equitable, high-quality education experiences for youth and adults.

BOCES stands for Board of Cooperative Educational Services. Mountain BOCES is one of 21 BOCES serving 166 school districts in Colorado. Similar to agricultural cooperatives, which have long supported rural communities, the Mountain BOCES exists to support and enhance the greater good for students across our region.

A Cooperative Structure

Mountain BOCES is committed to ensuring that Colorado students living in our small mountain communities have the same advantages as those who attend large school districts on the front range. Mountain BOCES works with its four member districts to supplement their services in a cooperative structure in which costs and resources are shared. Mountain BOCES also provides professional development and training to current school principals and educators as well as a path to licensure for those seeking an alternative route to becoming school leaders or educators.

Mountain BOCES is committed to access and equity in education for students and educators in mountain communities and across rural Colorado. We put programs and services within your reach, whether you live off Main Street or down a remote country road.
