An intermediate school district, in the United States, is a term used by some states to classify a special agency that operates outside of the traditional charter of a school district. The specific role of these agencies varies by state.


In Michigan, an intermediate school district is a government agency usually organized at the county or multi-county level that assists a local school district in providing programs and services. Additionally, they collect data for the state Department of Education.[1] An Intermediate School District has a Board of Education chosen by a group of electors with one member from each local school district's Board of Education.[2] Additionally they may recommend a merger of school districts to the Michigan State Board of Education.[3]


In Minnesota, an intermediate school district is a special designation applied to a school district formed as a cooperative effort of two or more school districts "offering integrated services for secondary, post-secondary and adult students in the areas of vocational education, special education, and other authorized services."[4]
