What is the Regional Information Center?
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 New York 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. We are a regional public education service organization. Services and associated hardware/software provided by Regional Information Center are eligible for BOCES aid. We are happy to assist school districts with specific program and funding considerations.
Where BOCES Regional Information Centers can help...
As non-profit organizations designed solely to serve the needs of school districts, we offer a variety of affordable high quality instructional and administrative services. Regional Information Centers are staffed by experienced professionals who are familiar with national and state initiatives. We work in collaboration with the NYS Education Department, assist districts in meeting State reporting requirements and work collaboratively to share resources within the twelve (12) RIC's in New York State.
