About Us
Below you'll find our Mercedes Special Education Cooperative (MSEC) Overview Brochure. The MSEC Overview Brochure was developed in an effort for Mercedes Special Education Cooperative to be more transparent.
The Overview illustrates the operational aspect of how the department is funded and the different services that are provided for our students and parents.

We hope that after reviewing the MSEC Overview Brochure you'll have a better understanding of the purpose of the Mercedes Special Education Cooperative and the services we provide.
