About the RRVEC

The Joint Powers Agreement, signed by the North Dakota Legislature in June 2005, provides school districts with a framework to use a coordinated approach to more efficiently and effectively use existing resources to meet the needs of students, staff, and communities. The Red River Valley Education Cooperative (RRVEC) is a part of the eight-region state network comprising the North Dakota Regional Education Association ( www.ndrea.org ).

 

The RRVEC represents nearly 13,000 K-12 students and approximately 1300 teachers in 22 member school districts, each represented by their respective superintendents at Administrative Board meetings. The Governing Board is comprised of seven school board members elected from each of the regions within the RRVEC. Cooperative Members include area special education units, institutes of higher education, and Career and Technical Education centers. 


RRVEC membership is voluntary for area school districts. The fiscal agent for the RRVEC is Grand Forks Public Schools ( www.gfschools.org ), and the RRVEC office is located in the REAC 1 UND Research Foundation Building at 4201 Jame Ray Drive on the UND campus.
