Staff Resources - Capital Region BOCES


Important notice regarding this page

09.26.06 -- With the majority of Capital Region BOCES employees logged in and using the BOCES Employee Resource Tool (BERT), the next phase in our intranet rollout involves moving employee specific documents off the public facing website.

Therefore the Staff Resource page and various forms will be removed from the CRB website on Oct. 3, 2016 and made available exclusively on BERT.

To those not yet familiar with BERT, in addition to providing one-stop access to all of the information and tools you need to do your job more efficiently and effectively, part of the idea behind BERT is to help strengthen the sense of community across BOCES.

Sign in and check out BERT today!

First, before you login to BERT, please login to your BOCES email account to ensure that you are using the right username and password. This is especially important for remote employees who do not work at 900 Watervliet-Shaker Road, as your password may be expired. Logging in to the email will identify this and allow you to update it. The link to login to the webmail is:

If you have forgotten your email password, you will have to contact the service desk to have it reset. (NERIC Service Desk: call (518) 862-5400 or e-mail

Then visit BERT and login using your NERIC email and password.

  • Watch a brief two-minute video outlining the sign in process. If your computer doesn’t have speakers, you can turn on the captions to read the narration.

  • Visit BERT's extensive Help & How-to section to learn how to navigate the site.

  • Get started by uploading your photo, adding your areas of expertise/skills and more information about yourself on your employee profile page. This will help all of us better connect names with faces across the organization.

If you have any questions or concerns, email or call 518-862-5488.
