NW BOCES renews director’s contract

Posted

Carolyn Conner will continue to serve as the administrative director of the Northwest Board of Cooperative Educational Services, as her contract was recently renewed for another two years. 

NW BOCES helps students in grades K-8 who have severe behavioral or emotional problems develop academic and social skills.

“It’s basically both a school and also a housing program for kids with emotional issues,” said Park County School District 1 School Board Chairman Kim Dillivan.

Conner has served as the organization’s administrative director for 19 years. A former social worker and school principal, she has worked in education for 38 years.

Conner said she hopes to continue to adapt to both students’ and the school districts’ needs.

“Over 80% of our students who complete the program don’t return to another program,” she said.

NW BOCES, which has been serving the region since 1970, is composed of representatives from 18 area school districts.

The school is located in Hot Springs State Park in Thermopolis.  It offers both day programs and residential services for up to 12 students at a time.
