Area Service Agencies for North Dakota Schools?
Area service agencies have been structured in many states to enhance service while preserving local school districts. A variety of patterns of cooperation have developed. In North Dakota a study team considered issues, based on the organizational and financial characteristics of existing area service agencies, about the organization of the proposed state service district. A series of recommendations were made for a district financed both by state appropriations and local contracts and performing state functions while responding to local needs. Among the remaining issues and questions considered are the appropriate number of agencies, whether the agencies should have taxing authority, what tasks properly remain at the county level, and problems of transition that include discontinuing the county superintendency in 1989. The appendixes contain an outline of recommendations and a table illustrating the percentage of superintendents interested in various services. (MLF)
