Upstate Institute for School Boards and Staff Development (P.K.A. GVSBI/Genesee Valley School Boards Institute) was established in 1954 and partnered with Wayne-Finger Lakes Board Of Cooperative Educational Services (BOCES) in 1990 to serve a 9 county region of upstate New York.
We have multiple annual conferences (usually held in the Greater Rochester, NY area) to help support staff to achieve their professional goals, enhance skills, obtain certifications, teach required training, and invoke awareness discussions.
We provide training and resources to educational support personnel and school boards in upstate New York.

CANCELLATION 3/13 OFFICE PROFESSIONAL’S CONFERENCE
MARCH 12, 2020:
Out of an abundance of caution and due to the recommendation of Monroe County’s Health Commissioner, Dr. Michael Mendoza, to reconsider gatherings of more than 50 people, the decision has been made to cancel the 35th Annual Training Conference for Educational Office Professionals, which was to be held on March 13th at the Kodak Center.
All charges and fees will be waived.
This is not a decision we have taken lightly, and we are sorry to disappoint those of you who were still planning to attend. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me.
