CBA Parents/Guardians


The procedure for requesting textbooks from Capital Region BOCES must be completed online. Please visit their website at to complete the textbook process electronically.

In order to complete the process, you will need a UNIQUE ID number. Your unique ID number is your son’s CBA student ID number. This number can be found in your CBA PowerSchool account. Sign in to Powerschool, go to Alert Solutions 2 on the left, and then to Contact Preferences at the top. Your Student ID number will be displayed. The ID number can also be found on student report cards and it is used for your school lunch account in the cafeteria.

Complete each field (including the UNIQUE ID number) press “Next Page” and then verify that all the information you entered is correct. Please carefully read the agreement; agree by checking the box, and select “Send Request.”

Once completed, you will receive an email from BOCES confirming your request. I will also receive an email to that effect here at CBA. If you find that any information is not correct, or if you have trouble signing in to BOCES, please contact BOCES at 518-464-5121.

Please note that textbooks for the upcoming school year will be not issued if your son’s current textbooks are not returned in accordance with BOCES’ policies. Please do not delay in returning his current textbooks. You are responsible for the return of all textbooks. Textbooks should be returned to BOCES at 6 British American Blvd., Latham, NY 12110 unless you have made other arrangements for the return of textbooks with BOCES. Please contact them if you have any questions.
