About the ISD
COOR Intermediate School District acts as a link between the Michigan Department of Education and local school districts. The ISD provides Special Education, Career and Technical Education, Early Childhood, and General Education programs and services. This four-county area comprises the second-largest region serviced by any ISD in the state (square miles) and the local districts enroll 7,544 students.
COOR ISD is located in picturesque northern Michigan, a region known for its natural beauty, teeming with lakes and rivers and vast tracts of forests. The area is renowned for outdoor opportunities including numerous ski resorts, world-class golf courses, wildlife viewing, hiking, hunting and fishing.
The Mission of COOR ISD is to provide programs and services with our partners to support the learning needs of our schools and communities.
The Vision of the COOR ISD is to be the leader for excellence in the continuum of services supporting programs within the schools and communities we serve.
The Board of Education adopted the new mission and vision statements created at the planning session in January. The Administration team is detailing action steps to implement each of the goal statements identified by the group of stakeholders. Strategic Plan Summary
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

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.
