Regional Education Consortium
The Regional Educational Consortium (REC) was created to assist service area school divisions in providing quality professional development programs for all of their personnel. Targeting the areas of leadership, instruction, technology, and support, the REC provides year-round training opportunities for personnel from all participating school divisions. In addition, the REC serves as an information provider regarding college courses for credit which may be used for licensure renewal, endorsement, and areas of interest. Specifically developed programs created to meet individual schools or divisions needs, are also available.
