The Cluster Five Special Education Cooperative:
Is a collaborative effort between Seven School Districts. The mission of the Cluster Five Special Education Cooperative is to ensure each child in our school districts identified with a disability is provided with an appropriate educational program that is designed to meet their specific needs. To accomplish this goal, the Co-op coordinates staff, resources, policies and procedures between the school districts.
The cooperative is governed by an elected chair and representative seven-member executive advisory committee comprised of participating districts' superintendents.The cooperative strives to ensure appropriate special education for all children with disabilities in all member districts. A continuum of services gives parents in our rural schools a full range of options. The school districts in Cluster Five are members of the cooperative in an effort to maximize opportunities for the delivery of special education services.
