Good Evening,


Our regional BOCES (Erie 2-Chautauqua-Cattaraugus BOCES) has partnered with the Ralph C. Wilson, Jr. Foundation and others to perform an ambitious study of the post-pandemic educational landscape of our region.  The goal is to ensure we are primed to meet the needs of every one of our K-12 students at both the regional and district level. 


As a key data point for this project, BOCES is asking school districts and numerous regional organizations to help them collect as many thoughts, opinions, and solutions as possible.  This will ensure a large-scale, comprehensive assessment of the needs of our region and its 27 component school districts.  Data gathered will shape short-term and long-term planning, as well as give us data to pursue BOCES-wide and District-specific grant opportunities.


The survey covers five main areas:

• Social/Emotional Well-being & Mental Health

• Program Alignment between Districts & E2CCB

• Career/Educational Pathways for Life Beyond High School

• Equity & Inclusion

• Technology, Tools & Resources for Students


If you are a parent or caregiver of a K-12 student, please take the time to complete this survey:


If you are a 5th grade through 12th grade student, we’d love to hear from you. Please take the time to complete this survey:


If you are an E2CCB or school district employee for one of our 27 component school districts, please take the time to complete this survey:


The goal is to collect data during the week of Monday, June 13 - Sunday, June 19. Your questions, comments, or concerns can help shape the educational future of our region. Thank you in advance for your participation!


Thank you in advance for lending your voice to the future of Public Education in Western New York.  


Yours Truly,
