  • The ability to identify and share best practices and service delivery frameworks
  • The ability to share resources across schools and services to serve students with unique needs
  • The ability to pool resources to mitigate financial risks associated with special education
  • The ability access professional development programs that align with the specific priorities and needs of consortium members
