Schools in New Orleans represent numerous Local Education Agencies (LEAs) that are not affiliated with a District for special education purposes. The LA COOP provides member schools not only an affiliation with a comprehensive special education support network, but also with best practice-based resources to enhance special education programs and operate compliant, integrated and innovative service delivery systems.

With emphasis on performance outcomes, the LA COOP offers special educators hands-on technical expertise to 1) improve classroom practice; 2) build toolboxes of scientifically based, prescriptive materials and resources; and 3) support implementation of continuums of specialized instruction options that address a wide range of student needs.
