Collaboration & Innovation to Improve Education


NDREA supports the seven REAs in North Dakota

The N.D. Regional Education Association (NDREA) provides support to strengthen the seven regional education service agencies (REAs) across the state. Through these seven REAs we serve 97% of the state’s public schools and more than 110,000 public school students. We believe through collaboration, a systemic approach, solution-oriented strategies and a focus on continuous improvement we can improve the quality of education across North Dakota.

NDREA members (REA directors and representatives from other organizations interested in advancing the NDREA mission) use a systematic approach to effectively share methods and practices that research has found to produce the best performance and results. Members support each other to ensure such practices are modeled in the operation of each respective REA.

NDREA's Core Services

  • Identify and establish clear standards of quality for professional development/learning including standards for quality outcomes and processes.
  • Exercise leadership to plan and implement high-quality programs and services within each REA and statewide
  • Capitalize on new statewide strategic initiative opportunities that will benefit all schools.
