Cooperative Agreements

  • Interlocal & Purchasing Cooperative Agreements

    Like all school districts in Washington State, Kent School District can enter agreements with other organizations and businesses to lower the costs of buying necessary goods and services under RCW 39.34 Interlocal Cooperation Act.

    The use of cooperative purchasing contracts also conserves various district resources associated with soliciting bids, such as advertising costs, and administrative time.
