New York State school districts face unprecedented challenges that require leaders to address fiscal concerns while maintaining high quality services. The state imposed property tax cap initiative and tax rebate plan will continue to increase financial pressure on schools while rigorous testing standards demand improved student performance. Sharing services and utilizing BOCES programming is the most effective way to provide diverse learning opportunities for students while maintaining responsible fiscal governance. These collaborations must be a cornerstone of administrative practice as leaders look to build a sustainable future for quality public education. 


CASDA faculty experts draw upon extensive research conducted by the Survey Research Institute at Cornell University to facilitate school collaborations in areas including:

  • Regional PD for administrators.

  • Regional PD for teachers.

  • Joint purchasing.

  • Health Insurance.

  • Summer School.

  • Distance Learning.

  • Youth recreation.

  • Pupil Transportation.

  • Recreational and Athletic Facilities.

  • Maintenance.

  • Telecommunications.

  • Special Education.

  • Financial services.

  • Administrative Staff and Offices.
