Dutchess BOCES District Superintendent Search Process

The Dutchess BOCES Board of Trustees met February 18th to begin the process of developing a search plan and profile for the next District Superintendent. We have created a confidential survey for stakeholders to share their views of the characteristics they would like to see in the next District Superintendent as well as thoughts on what Dutchess BOCES should aspire to be over the next three to five years. By clicking on the link below you will be able to participate in this important process. Please complete and return the survey by March 3, 2015.


We will also post a District Superintendent Search timeline on the BOCES website www.dcboces.org by March 3rd.

In-District makes Bonnie Boxes

Bonnie Boxes Student Community ProjectBOCES Students Serve Through Pawling High School

Dutchess BOCES students recently collected items to help women undergoing cancer treatment and chemotherapy.

“Bonnie Boxes” are hand-decorated shoeboxes that are filled with helpful items and little gifts to bring smiles to patients’ faces. Items include warm socks, lip balm, mints, ginger ale, graham crackers, puzzles, and get well cards.

Bonnie Rotker Acker and her son began the effort before she lost her brave battle with cancer. The community service project was completed through the Interact Club at Pawling High School.
