The mission of the Orange-Ulster BOCES is to serve its component districts and community in the development of continuous learners who will be successful in meeting the challenges of living in our society today and in the future. It will accomplish this mission in a cost-effective manner with a dedicated, skilled, caring staff providing quality educational services in a safe, nurturing and accessible environment

The main campus of the Orange-Ulster BOCES is located on Gibson Road in Goshen. The complex consists of four buildings housing Administrative Offices, the Special Education Center, the Career and Technical Education Center, and a Resource Center. Students with disabilities are additionally served in programs located at Minisink Valley Central School District, Pine Bush CSD, Valley Central SD, Middletown Enlarged City SD, Goshen CSD, Florida Union Free School District, Chester UFSD, Warwick Valley CSD, Cornwall CSD and the Liberty Street School in Middletown. The Harriman Learning Center houses our Technology Department, Professional Development Services and Library Services. OU BOCES also provides programs for children and adults in the Chester Learning Center, the Main Street School in Goshen, the Middletown Adult Learning Center, and at 471 Broadway in Newburgh.

The term “BOCES” stands for Board of Cooperative Educational Services. BOCES is a regional educational service provider in New York State which functions as an extension of local school districts. BOCES is able to provide services that school districts may be too small to offer on their own or that would be more economical to offer collaboratively and share costs with other districts.

The function of a BOCES is to provide shared services to the component school districts in a manner that is cost-effective, efficient, and fosters equity for students. The Commissioner of Education has also charged the BOCES with providing leadership and support in developing the capacity of local schools to enable students to meet both the performance requirements of the New York State Learning Standards and the new graduation requirements. Typically, BOCES provides special education, career and technical education, adult education, professional development, instructional services, educational technology, library services and a number of management services for component school districts.

The Practical Nurse program can provide many opportunities for employment: hospitals, nursing homes, clinics, physicians’ offices or home health agencies.

The program adheres to NYS approved curriculum. The Orange-Ulster BOCES PN Program is approved for 1104 hours of instruction. Classroom instruction takes place at the Middletown Learning Center, 130 Dolson Ave. Middletown, NY.

Successful course completion is required to be eligible to sit for the Practical Nursing State Board exam. Admissions to the PN programs are competitive.
