Factors Governing the Establishment and Operation of Cooperative Comprehensive Educational Service Centers in Wyoming with Application to a State Master Plan. A Position Paper and a Proposal.
Perryman, Bruce C.
A statewide plan for educational programs encourages coordination of efforts and effective allocation of resources. Thus, the purpose of this study was to investigate the factors governing: (1) the establishment and operation of comprehensive Educational Service Centers in Wyoming, (2) the extent of such programs, (3) their purposes, enrollment, organization, and financing, and (4) the application of these data to the State of Wyoming. To facilitate this investigation a comparison was made between a criteria model, developed from a national study, and a profile for Wyoming. Using data obtained from the State Department of Education, the comparison led to these four broad recommendations: (1) that the State be divided into 12 contiguous geographic Cooperative Comprehensive Educational Service Centers, (2) that each of the 12 areas should also serve as a basis for occupational planning for Grades K-16, (3) that cooperative relationships leading to more effective coordination of resources be encouraged, and (4) that a planned scope of work encompassing the necessary studies to be conducted be taken up as a measure to insure the collection of factual data needed for effective planning.
