Summary

Small school districts and other agencies are turning in increasing numbers to cooperative programs to provide better inservice teacher training; more vocational experiences for students; more qualified counselors and specialists; more audiovisual materials; low-cost teacher recruitment; increased science, foreign language, and mathematics opportunities; and special programs for gifted or handicapped students. This report presents some of the approaches that are being used in setting up such cooperatives. Experts for the Appalachia Educational Laboratory in Charleston, W. Va. tell how they helped districts in Virginia, Kentucky, Tennessee, and Pennsylvania develop and test the cooperative concept. In addition, they--and authorities from other parts of the country--give some pointers schools can use in setting up their own cooperatives, including how to head off problems. The report examines the kinds of services that school districts can profitably share. Examples are drawn largely from a Northwest Regional Educational Laboratory survey of such programs in 46 states. Another part of the report takes a look at how some states have changed their laws to make multidistrict cooperation possible through intermediate education service units. These units, in some cases statewide, give districts access to top-quality service programs. (Author/JY)
