SUPPLEMENTING THE PROGRAMS AND SERVICES OF RURAL SCHOOL SYSTEMS BY NEW TYPE REGIONAL SERVICE AGENCIES.
LOVELESS, JOHN E.
THE INTERMEDIATE DISTRICT, ESTABLISHED BY LAW IN NEW YORK STATE IN 1948, IS A COOPERATIVE EDUCATIONAL VENTURE PROVIDING SMALL RURAL SCHOOLS WITH SERVICES WHICH ARE NOT USUALLY POSSIBLE, DUE TO THE SIZE AND ISOLATION OF THESE SCHOOL DISTRICTS. SEVERAL OF THESE INTERMEDIATE DISTRICTS, LABELED BOCES (BOARD OF COOPERATIVE EDUCATIONAL SERVICES), HAVE BEEN ESTABLISHED IN NEW YORK STATE. ONE OF THESE ORGANIZATIONS, ONTARIO-SENECA-YATE BOCES, ENCOMPASSES THREE COUNTIES, WAS CHARTERED IN 1954, AND IS COMPOSED OF 16 SCHOOL DISTRICTS WHICH ENROLL BETWEEN 25,000 AND 30,000 PUPILS. AS A RESULT OF THIS COOPERATION, THESE SCHOOL DISTRICTS ARE NOW PROVIDED ADDITIONAL SERVICES WHICH CAN BE DIVIDED INTO SIX CATEGORIES--INTINERANT TEACHERS, ADMINISTRATIVE SERVICES, OCCUPATIONAL SERVICES, SPECIAL EDUCATION, AND PUPIL PERSONNEL SERVICES. THIS SPEECH WAS PRESENTED AT THE NATIONAL OUTLOOK CONFERENCE ON RURAL YOUTH, OCTOBER 23-26, 1967, WASHINGTON, D.C., SPONSORED JOINTLY BY THE U.S. DEPARTMENTS OF AGRICULTURE, HEALTH, EDUCATION, AND WELFARE, INTERIOR, AND LABOR, OEO, AND THE PRESIDENT'S COUNCIL ON YOUTH OPPORTUNITY.
