What are Co-ops & Shared Services Arrangements?
Education Service Center Region 12 offers a number of Co-operatives and Shared Service Arrangements. Shared Service Arrangements (SSAs) and co-operatives are agreements between member districts and the Education Service Center. They allow schools to pool funds and receive services at a discounted rate through these partnerships.
Educators who work at a campus or district that is member of a co-op can attend trainings at no additional cost or at lower cost and may receive additional direct services performed for the member districts. Co-operatives and SSAs help schools leverage and share resources, preserving more money within the classroom for student achievement.
