Co-operation Areas 2015-2016

The basic education in Turku is divided into three co-operation areas that in turn are divided into student areas.  A student area comprises one or more secondary schools and those primary schools from where the students proceed to the these secondary schools.  The co-operation areas are the Northern, Southern, and Eastern areas.

The mutual co-operation of the schools in the co-operation area is coordinated by the area principals.

The area principals are Sari Grönroos (North), Jarmo Salo (South) ja Maarit Jalo (East).
