Purpose and Values

Regional Technology Plan

Each Regional Information Center (RIC), working cooperatively with other BOCES within its service delivery area, is required to prepare a regional plan for providing technology services in its supervisory district. This is known as the Chapter 793 Plan or Regional Technology Plan.

This plan must be submitted to the New York State Commissioner of Education on or before the last day of March of each year.

Each plan must outline the actions completed during the prior year, current technology efforts in the region, and a five-year projection of major tasks to be undertaken.

Regional Technology Advisory Group (RTAG)

To ensure BOCES and component school district voice is included in the regional technology plan, each Regional Information Center conducts a needs assessment to help create the Chapter 793 Plan, also known as a Regional Technology Plan.

The SCRIC established a governance structure in 2021. This governance structure is known as the Regional Technology Advisory Group (RTAG). Members of this group are appointed by each BOCES District Superintendent, or designee, helping to provide feedback on regional technology priorities and services.
