Exceptional Child Cooperative
The Exceptional Child Education Cooperative is a joint effort of thirteen south central Missouri school districts.
These schools have banded together, pooling available funds, in order to cooperatively provide special education services to students who have been identified as disabled as defined by PL94-142. The Houston R-1 School District serves as the fiscal agent for this Coop.
The Exceptional Child Education Cooperative provides specialized resources for our member school districts. These areas include assistance in identifying ways to help children with special needs, and help with providing for many of those services. The “Coop” is one of 20 similar special education cooperatives in Missouri. Coop teachers serve approximately 800 students.
Jeremy Smith is the Director of the Exceptional Child Cooperative.
