Welcome To

C.O.O.R. Intermediate School District

The ISD acts as a link between the Michigan Department of Education and local school districts. The ISD provides Special Education, Career and Technical Education, Information Technology, and General Education programs and services.  C.O.O.R. ISD  includes the counties of Crawford, Oscoda, Ogemaw and Roscommon, an area covering 2400 square miles. 

Within this area C.O.O.R. serves six local public school districts; Crawford-AuSable Schools, Mio AuSable Schools, Fairview Area Schools, Houghton Lake Community Schools, West Branch-Rose City Schools and Roscommon Area Public Schools; and one Public School Academy, the Charlton Heston Academy.

The ISD collects and monitors data that is required by the Michigan Department of Education, and works with local districts to ensure that the type and nature of services needed within our area are properly represented at the state level.

The services that the ISD provides allow local school districts regardless of size to have access to quality personnel, services and programs that they could not afford individually. This prevents unnecessary duplication and better use of state and local money through the sharing of resources.
