Collaboration & Innovation to Improve Education

NDREA supports the eight REAs in North Dakota

The N.D. Regional Education Association (NDREA) provides support to strengthen the eight regional education service agencies (REAs) across the state. Through these eight REAs we serve 97% of the state’s public schools and more than 100,000 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.
