All teachers in East Central BOCES have access to our ECBOCES Zoom account.  The advantage to using the ECBOCES account is we will be able to better support you during your conferences and you will be able to easily connect with all of the other ECBOCES teachers as well as ECBOCES staff through the Chat.

If you do not know your East Central BOCES login, go to and try to do a password reset using a username in the format of firstname.lastname.  If you do not receive an email, then click on the Help and select Request an Account.  Fill out the form and one of our tech gurus(!) will create an account for you and email you your login info.

When you get your account info, log into the ECBOCES website and change your password.

By default, teachers are given a basic account.  During the COVID crisis, Zoom is approving our districts for a free upgrade and the basic accounts have had the time limitation removed so your account will allow for full length meetings.  Once your district is approved, when you first log into the website, you should see a green banner stating that Zoom has removed the time limitation.  If you do not see that and you really need to run a conference longer than 40 minutes, please submit a request to
