Welcome To COOR 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, Early Childhood, and General Education programs and services.
The COOR Intermediate School District will plan and provide the highest level of programs and services to meet current needs and anticipate those of the future. This will be achieved in partnership with all local educational interests through communication, collaboration, and cooperation.
Thank you to the hundreds of stakeholders who completed our survey and the many who participated in the planning session on Saturday, January 13th. The COOR ISD Board of Education and administrators will be finalizing goal statements for the next three to five years in the next few weeks.
COOR ISD includes the counties of Crawford, Oscoda, Ogemaw and Roscommon, an area covering 2400 square miles. Within this area, COOR serves six local public school districts and two Public School Academies (see "District Map" to the right):
Mio AuSable Schools
Fairview Area Schools
Houghton Lake Community Schools
Roscommon Area Public Schools
West Branch-Rose City Schools
Charlton Heston Academy
Alternative Educational Academy of Ogemaw County
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.
