The CNYRIC Model Schools Program offers instructional technology integration strategies and support with the goal of transforming teaching to meet the needs of 21st-century learners. ITD Professional Development includes over 100 learning opportunities for teachers and administrators throughout the year, delivered in several formats: face-to-face workshops, on-line courses, special meetings and user-groups, and on-site support . All ITD Professional Development is provided at no additional charge for districts enrolled in the OCM BOCES Model Schools Program.
