Professional Development
The CNYRIC Model Schools Program offers instructional technology integration strategies and support with the goal of transforming teaching to meet the needs of 21st-century learners.  ITD Professional Development includes over 100 learning opportunities for teachers and administrators throughout the year, delivered in several formats: face-to-face workshops, on-line courses, special meetings and user-groups, and on-site support . All ITD Professional Development is provided at no additional charge for districts enrolled in the OCM BOCES Model Schools Program. 

There are a variety of forms that must be filled out by trainers, instructors, substitutes, and administrators regarding the Model Schools Program. The trainer is responsible for collecting these forms and submitting them to the appropriate person (either the district’s business manager or the Model Schools Coordinator).  Click here to view the Model Schools Progam Service Description Guide.
