The Greater Fall River Vocational School District Committee will cooperate with other schools and with lo­cal, state, and regional agencies and organizations to:

    1.   Seek solutions of educational problems of common concern.

    2.   Offer support services of high quality to our children.

    3.   Equalize educational opportunities for all children.

    4.   Acquire federal and state grants.

    5.   Promote local school system involvement in state and federal decision making

    This cooperation may extend to research, providing transportation for children to special schools and hospitals, coordination of cur­riculum, exchange of information and data, construction of facili­ties that may be efficiently used on a cooperative basis, and the coordination of school calendars and activities.

    Before joining any cooperative programs, education collaborative, or participating in any joint educational services with other school systems, the Regional School Committee wants to be sure that in all instances the best interests of our school children will be served.  In carry­ing out this policy the Superintendent-Director will include in reports to the Committee an evaluation of the desirability and feasibility of cooperation with other schools and agencies on matters of mutual in­terest.

    Private Schools

    The Committee recognizes that many worthwhile contributions are made to this community by parochial and other private schools.  There­fore, it will cooperate with these schools in matters of mutual ben­efit when this cooperation is not expressly prohibited by law.
