This study contained information concerning the four primary deliverers of intermediate educational services in Illinois - Education Service Regions, Education Service Centers, special education cooperatives and vocational education cooperatives. Administrators in Iroquois, Kankakee and Vermilion Counties were surveyed as to their knowledge, use of and satisfaction with the services provided by the above entities, and whether or not those deliverers of intermediate educational services should be consolidated and administered by one elected or appointed chief administrator.
The findings and conclusions indicated that Education Service Regions and the Education Service Center serving the above counties were providing effective services to constituent districts. Special education cooperatives and vocational education cooperatives needed to do a better job of educating constituent districts about their services. The results indicated that there was no overwhelming desire to consolidate the above entities into one deliverer of intermediate educational services.
