Our Mission

South Eastern BOCES is committed to providing support, resources, and professional development to our teachers and staff in order to best meet the needs of our gifted students in southeastern Colorado. Our regional consultant (GERC), the SE BOCES Gifted Education Director, and school/district gifted education coordinators work together to facilitate a Comprehensive Program Plan that specifies guidelines and options for identification and programming for gifted students.  We provide a variety of professional development opportunities, including quarterly networking meetings, regional workshops, on-line courses, and the annual SE BOCES conference at Lamar Community College. Our primary focus is on enhancing the use of effective instructional strategies and programs to facilitate rigor and challenge for each identified gifted student, based on his or her individual needs and personal goals.
