CENTRAL, La. - The Central school system will join a cooperative of about 30 Louisiana school districts in an effort designed to save money on purchases of software and computers, create online courses for students and improve the process of crafting class offerings.

The Advocate reports the Central School Board has approved a memorandum of understanding with the District Cooperative of Louisiana and a separate agreement with Vermilion Parish, which launched the cooperative earlier this year.

Central board President James Gardner says he and other board members were impressed with a presentation by Vermilion school officials in March during the annual conference of the Louisiana School Board Association.

Central will pay $1,500 a year to participate in the cooperative.
