The Core Educational Cooperative became a reality on Thursday.
Core, which plans to run in place of Mid Central Educational Cooperative will focus on providing special education services to students enrolled in its 12 member school districts.
Districts involved in Core are: Colome, Armour, Burke, Corsica-Stickney, Gregory, Kimball, Plankinton, Platte-Geddes, Wessington Springs, White Lake and Wolsey-Wessington.
Core members decided the city of Platte will be the home of the newly formed cooperative. The building that will house the cooperative’s operations will be determined at a later meeting.
