Cuero ISD to leave DLSEC

 

After discussing the matter for over a year, Cuero School District trustees have agreed to withdraw from the DeWitt-Lavaca Special Education Cooperative. The district will create its own special eduction program effective with the 2014-15 school year.

However, the district began talking about leaving the cooperative several months ago. The primary reasons given included: CISD needs the space because of overcrowding, differences in pay scales for para-professionals and aides at DLSEC and CISD, and costs of serving as fiscal agent for DLSEC.
