Welcome to the Rum River Special Education Cooperative (RRSEC) website


RRSEC is an agency of seven member school districts that have joined together to provide services to students ages B-21, identified as having a disability. The Cooperative also provides resources and staff development to school staff, administrators and parents/guardians. This technical assistance helps support districts in their efforts to provide appropriate services to all children with disabilities that might otherwise be difficult for an individual school district to provide. 

The information provided in our web
site will enable you to learn more about the Cooperative and provide you with resources in regards to special education. Thank you for taking the time to visit our website.
