As a type of special education cooperative known as an interlocal special education cooperative, we have a document that legally outlines our services and agreements with our member districts. Every so often, the document is reviewed and updated to reflect changes within the organization. Our interlocal agreement was revised and adopted by the Board in December of 2015. This document was recently filed with the State Board of Accounts and the County Recorder, the final process to make it 100% official.
One of the changes within the interlocal agreement is a new name for our organization. "Special Services, Johnson County & Surrounding Schools" no longer appropriately reflects our scope of work in supporting our member districts. It's also a mouthful to say and we often get confused with Southside Special Services.
From this summer forward, we will be known as Earlywood Educational Services. Along with the obvious new logo and letterhead, we're investigating the feasibility of a new email address as well. Stay tuned for more details.
