This site is designed to provide Rockland County educators with the most up-to-date information from NYSED as Regents Reform initiatives are implemented in districts across the state.

Our upcoming workshops are designed to provide educators with opportunities for continued professional growth in instructional practice, data driven inquiry and assessment, and teacher/leader effectiveness. Your Rockland BOCES Network Team and our consultants regularly attend Network Team Training in Albany in order to keep you up-to-date with the most current information from NYSED. In addition, we have been calibrated in both the teacher and principal practice rubrics to better provide you with all necessary training.

Additionally, the links on the RTTT pages will connect you to Rockland BOCES resources and tools that you may find useful as you continue to implement APPR, Inquiry Teams and Common Core Learning Standards in your school districts.

We encourage you to share successful strategies and professional development initiatives so that others may benefit from best practices.
