what is


We serve five school corporations, in four counties, which are also a member of the cooperative.  They provide space in their regular school buildings in which SSU staff members perform a variety of services including testing, counseling, therapy, and resource room teaching.

Our Mission: To ensure that each student has the opportunity to develop skills that will enable him/her to reach his/her potential and pursue further goals in education, independent living, and personal growth.

The four-county service area serves approximately 20 schools.
We have a close relationship with the Indiana Department of Mental Health and have two state hospitals that are fully participating members of our Special Education Cooperative.
