Education cooperatives were established in Arkansas through Act 349 of 1985 to provide to school districts three main areas of support. As defined by law, cooperatives were to provide to districts:

  • Assistance in meeting or exceeding accreditation standards and equalizing educational opportunities

  • Using educational resources more effectively through cooperation among districts

  • Promoting coordination between school districts and the Arkansas Department of Education in order to provide services which are consistent with the needs identified by school districts and the educational priorities of the state as established by the General Assembly or the State Board
