Summary

This report examines how Minnesota school districts use regional education organizations and how well the existing system of regional organizations serves school districts. Data were obtained from a survey of all 395 Minnesota school districts, of which 321, or a response rate of 81 percent, responded. The survey focused on issues surrounding school district membership in an education district or in one or more of three types of cooperative organizations: special education, secondary vocational, and telecommunications cooperatives. Findings indicate that: (1) there are a variety of regional education organizations available to Minnesota school districts; (2) there is extensive school district involvement in regional education organizations; (3) districts join primarily to obtain additional programs and services; (4) districts receive a wide variety of programs and services from regional education organizations; (5) districts are generally satisfied with their regional education organizations; (6) districts find advantages and disadvantages in belonging to more than one organization; and (7) most of those districts that choose not to join do so primarily because of their negative perceptions of structure, operation, and the requirement for local levy. Desirable qualities of a regional education organization include stability, accessibility, and local ownership. Eleven figures and four tables are included. The appendix contains the school district survey. (LMI)
