Office Professional Applications Learning (OPAL)

At the MHRIC, our goal is to support school districts to improve their workflow.

Although others are welcome, our OPAL classes are designed to train district office professionals on products they may use in their everyday duties. We offer classes in both Microsoft and Google applications, along with many others. In addition, a district may request special classes from our repertoire.

For member districts, employees, board members and parents/guardians* of current students are invited to come to any class free of charge. Others are welcome upon payment of the indicated fee.

See the navigation menu on this page for our current OPAL districts and our potential topics. Our currently scheduled classes can be found in our catalog here.

[*Parents and guardians must obtain the current code from their student's district.]

In Case of Inclement Weather: Is the class cancelled? Is it delayed? How will I know?

Please do not pay attention to what the radio says for Ulster BOCES . Instead, call the MHRIC at 255-1450 x5000 and listen to the message. If there is no special message, the class will run at the scheduled time. In-person classes are cancelled if we are closed. If we have a delay, in-person morning and all day classes will be be cancelled. Online classes will be similarly cancelled unless you receive an email from the instructor.

If we cancel a class, we will make every attempt to reschedule and notify you of the new date.
