About Us


The Center for Special Services provides specialized programs and services designed to help school districts meet the current and future educational challenges of students with disabilities. School districts refer students to Southern Westchester BOCES programs through their CSE process. Programs are located in local school district buildings, community settings and BOCES center-based settings throughout Westchester County. SWBOCES also provides specialized services to students who attend school in their local districts. Financial assistance may be available to districts as BOCES services may qualify for BOCES Aid or Excess Cost Aid.

Our mission at the SWBOCES Center for Special Services is "To collaborate with districts, agencies, and communities to meet their educational challenges by providing regional leadership and cost effective, high quality services."
