About Us:

The Big East Educational Cooperative is one of the eleven (11) Special Education Cooperatives located across the state. All 176 local school districts, and the Kentucky Schools for the Blind and Deaf are members of a special education cooperative. Funding is provided using federal dollars awarded to Kentucky under Part B, Section 611, of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act Amendments of 1997. The Special Education Cooperative Network is intended to assist local school districts in meeting the needs of its member districts. Services range from technical assistance, trainings, professional development, specialized services, research, and other needs identified by member districts and the Kentucky Department of Education.
