East Wharton County Cooperative

The East Wharton County Cooperative (EWCC) is a shared services arrangement among the Boling, East Bernard, and Wharton ISDs that provides special education services to eligible students ages three through twenty-one.  We strive to provide a child centered educational process and instructional and related services in the least restrictive environment using a variety of placement options for special needs students.  The EWCC is committed to communication and collaboration among students, parents, educators, and other stakeholders so that children with disabilities can receive appropriate educational programming.

If you have a child who might benefit from special education services, please do not hesitate to contact your child’s campus to request a special education referral.  You may also contact Erin Andel, Director of Special Education, at 979-532-6245.
