The Regional Information Center supports information and technology needs of school districts in Suffolk County. It is one of twelve (12) Regional Information Centers located throughout the State. Professional and cost-effective services include software training; installation, support, and maintenance for a variety of financial and student information systems; special education software support; test scoring; data warehouse and student data analysis; network design and management; Local Area Network (LAN) and Wide Area Network (WAN) support; and microcomputer repair services. Our goal is to help districts use technology to make district management easier and more efficient.
Student Services is composed of various software packages that enable school districts to manage their extensive student information needs.
School districts are now required to compile, analyze and inform school personnel, parents, and the State Education Department on a wealth of data that they are required to disseminate. These management tools help each district to analyze student performance for enhanced instructional implications, while keeping parents informed regarding the progress of their child in the day-to-day world of education.
The staff of Student Services is comprised of highly trained technical and content support personnel who are an integral part of the Regional Information Center. They provide service and expertise to districts in both Western and Eastern Suffolk BOCES as requested by the individual districts.
