 "Providing exceptional programs for students of all abilities."

Through these Cosers, instructional services are provided to component districts on a shared basis. This service maintains and enhances educational programs where full-time personnel are not required. The maximum share of any given service in a single district is three days per week or 60%. Each position must be shared among two or more districts and can be provided for the ten month school year.

The cost formula is based on a per diem basis of either a 10-month or 12-month contractual employee.

Any academic support service that is required can be designed as an itinerant service if it meets the criteria described above.
