The Education Cooperative (TEC) strives to provide an enriched and stimulating learning environment that offers our students the opportunities to grow as individuals and become productive members of society. The TEC staff work as an integrated team to best serve as well as challenge TEC students as they embrace their potential and to become actively involved in their own learning process thereby reaching their full potential.
When the The Education Cooperative (TEC) receives a referral from a school district, TEC staff engages with school district and family to determine programming and find solutions for the student who is struggling in their current school placement. TEC Schools have a rolling admission process therefore students can be accepted and enrolled throughout the school year.
TEC accepts referrals from the student’s school district. Typically, students have IEPs, however TEC also accepts students who are in the evaluation process.
Each school has an enrollment process that is is unique to the needs of the each school’s student population and programming. Hence, the majority of the referral process is based at the school level.
