Northwest Colorado Board of Cooperative Educational Services (NW BOCES) is a cooperative service agency authorized under Colorado statutes, serving seven school districts in northwest Colorado. NW BOCES provides shared services and programs which supplement and support those of the districts.
Northwest Colorado BOCES originated in 1967 as the Child Study Center, when three founding districts recognized a need to provide extra services to children with special needs, by sharing specialists and funding. The original charter - to provide special education services among geographically distant mountainous districts - remains a primary focus today.
