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 about 7,500 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.
Our Career & Technical Education program has been revamped for the 2019-2020 school year. Classes are offered five days per week at your local district and other districts within the ISD. The Vocational Early Middle College options will continue to allow high school students to earn college credit in Welding, Automotive, or Criminal Justice.

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.
