Developing the themes presented in sections I and II, a model is presented for the development of a multicounty regional educational service agency for a selected area of the State, comprising seven east central Iowa county school systems. Considered as a guide for planning, the model is described in seven chapters, including an introductory overview and the following five sets of guidelines for the establishment of the agency: (1) Organization and administration, including the role and function of the governing board, advisory groups, and proposed director districts for the initial board; (2) development of programs and services of the unit, staffing needs, and special equipment requirements; (3) the recruitment, induction, development, and evaluation of staff personnel; (4) financing and housing requirements; and (5) governing the relationship of the agency with constituent local school districts, the State department of public instruction, and other educational agencies and governmental subdivisions.
