WHO WE ARE
Santa Fe Trail BOCES was formed in July, 1999 by five districts. The districts were Cheraw, East Otero, Las Animas, Rocky Ford and Swink. In 2008 Wiley was accepted as a member, bringing the total to six.
SFTBOCES is an acronym for Santa Fe Trail Board of Cooperative Educational Services. BOCES exist to provide educational services to two or more school districts that alone cannot afford the service, or find it advantageous and cost-effective to cooperate with other districts. By pooling resources, districts reduce costs, avoid duplication, and provide for a more comprehensive range of services and programs. Participating as a member of the BOCES members are able to provide more efficient and effective programs and services to support the advancement of student achievement and maximizing resources.
