About This Site

Capital Region BOCES, in partnership with its 24 components school districts, has launched this website as a resource for P-12 educators to support them with remote learning.

This site houses high-quality educational resources and lessons mapped to the highest priority curriculum standards for P-8 math and ELA, middle school science and social studies, and Regents courses. This is a coordinated effort designed to maximize the efforts and talent found across our districts for the good of all educators in our region.

All of the content on this site — the lessons, resources and guidelines pertaining to curriculum, instruction and grading — are intended to provide a common starting point for districts. Individual teachers should connect with their supervisor regarding how best to make use of these resources and follow the direction of their district leadership.

This site is not intended for students or parents, and teachers should not direct students to this website since it is organized and optimized for educators. Instead, on the various lesson unit pages, teachers will find resources, including links to video lessons and educational websites, which they may choose to use with their students through their own learning management systems and/or online learning platforms.

Please note that for grades K-8 ELA and math, each new unit will be posted on the website by the end-of-business on the Wednesday before the unit starts. 

For each unit, teachers also have the option of downloading an editable lesson plan, pre-populated with the resources displayed on this site, in order to customize their lesson for their students.

Although conceived of and created for Capital Region educators, we welcome educators throughout New York who may find it helpful during the suspension of onsite classes.

Launching this website would not have been possible without the collaboration and dedication of teacher volunteers throughout our region, who took on this work in addition to their own teaching responsibilities. Our thanks to the many professionals from our component districts:
