Tech Valley High School is a joint venture of Capital Region BOCES and Questar III BOCES, accepting students from both BOCES regions, covering much of the Capital Region.

The two BOCES share the management and operation of TVHS, including filling the TVHS Operating Board with five board members from each BOCES.

In 1948, the New York State Legislature created Boards of Cooperative Educational Services (BOCES) to provide shared educational programs and services to school districts within the state. Today there are 37 BOCES that are partnering with nearly all of the state’s school districts to help meet students’ evolving educational needs through cost-effective and relevant programs.

BOCES membership is not currently available to the “Big Five” city school districts: New York City, Buffalo, Rochester, Yonkers, and Syracuse.

The BOCES network is capable of including municipalities and divisions of the state with school districts in the provision of cost-effective services.
