NOTE: The BOCES program budgets change throughout the year as districts choose to send more or fewer students to BOCES programs or to subscribe to more or fewer BOCES services. The BOCES Board approves all budget changes at its monthly meetings. Such changes are not included in the Tentative Budget but are found in the approved minutes of the monthly meetings.

Local Funding and State Aid

Western Suffolk BOCES is financially supported by its 18 participating school districts as well as state and federal grants. Every April, the 18 participating Boards of Education vote on the BOCES Administrative Budget.  The costs associated with the BOCES Administrative Budget and the Capital Budget are borne by the 18 participating school districts based on a three-year weighted average daily attendance rate.

School districts that request Western Suffolk BOCES services pay a prorated service fee or tuition as itemized in a shared-services contract. School districts receive state aid on many services based on the previous year's audited expenses of BOCES programs and services. The wealth of each component district, its aid ratio and the cost of Western Suffolk BOCES services determine how much aid participating districts receive. Local districts receive their state aid for the BOCES programs and services they used in the year following the district's expenditures.

Western Suffolk BOCES also receives federal and state grants to support some of its programs and services.
