The purpose of this project was to design a working document which could be used by the four-school community education consortium in its management practices. The underlying question was whether it was possible to design a document which would be simple and complete, by still address the many needs of four different school systems.

The completed project includes a document which addresses the many facets of administering a multi-district consortium. It outlines the duties and responsibilities of each district at the present time while allowing for the realigning of those duties and responsibilities at a later date.

As a result of studying the purposes of community education and the characteristics of the four school systems, a plan was developed which will enable the consortium to manage with improved efficiency and to continue promoting education as a lifelong process.
