Interpretive Study of Research and Development Relative to Educational Cooperatives. Final Report.
Hughes, Larry W.; And Others
This document analyzes some of the aspects of the trend toward educational regionalism and cooperation. Educational cooperatives are designed to provide the flexibility and service associated with large districts while allowing for local control and school district autonomy. Types of educational cooperatives discussed include intermediate education districts, voluntary education agencies, school study councils, industry and education coordination, shared personnel arrangements, and centralized facilities. The legal arrangements necessary for educational cooperatives are explained and some examples of administrative organization under the various consortium programs are provided. (RA)
