The DCMO BOCES Arts In Education (AIE) cooperative service provides arts and cultural learning experiences for students and teachers from school districts in the Delaware-Chenango-Madison-Oneida BOCES and the Otsego Northern Catskills BOCES regions.

AIE coordinates school district partnerships with a variety of arts and cultural resources, including museums, libraries, historical sites, performing arts centers, arts organizations, and teaching artists, to provide opportunities to support and extend arts learning through performances, workshops, residencies, field trips, exhibits, and professional learning opportunities connected to NYS Learning Standards and curriculum.

Experiences in music, dance, theater, visual arts, media arts, and literary arts can help students create meaning across academic subjects and build a deeper understanding of self, community, and culture.
