Specific cooperative programs described are joint agreements in Illinois; intermediate school districts in Michigan; the program in Oakland County, Michigan; cooperative programs in California; southwest school districts of Los Angeles County; the program in Orange County, California; and the boards of cooperative educational services in New York.
