The Itasca Area Schools Collaborative (IASC), under a joint powers agreement, was formed in August 2005 to bring new focus to a partnership of area school districts seeking increased educational opportunities for students.
As a result of strong existing collaborations among the districts in a number of different areas, the districts analyzed, explored, redefined and expanded its focus to increased educational opportunities for learners by increasing cooperation and coordination among school districts, other governmental units, and post secondary institutions.
Leveraging relationships and trust between districts, IASC intends to achieve education transformation and improve sustainable education outcome through strengthened partnerships and cooperation, state of the art architectures, integration of functions and enhanced stakeholder understanding.
