In 2005, the North Dakota Legislature appropriated one million dollars toward the formation of Regional Education Associations (REAs). Originally created to provide an infrastructure to save money through more collaboration amongst regional schools, REAs have expanded those services to support schools in areas such as technology, grant writing, and expanded opportunities in professional development. Assisting schools in reaching their goals for student achievement has become central to their mission.
The SEEC is one of eight regional education associations originally created in July 2005 with 17 schools. In July 2008, the SEEC merged with the South Central Education Cooperative (SCEC) and its 18 schools. The new SEEC has more than 35,000 students and 3,500 teachers, in 40 school districts. Through this merger, the Executive Committees and Governing Boards wanted to build on the strengths of each organization and expand services to support schools in increasing student achievement. The SEEC membership includes school districts, colleges, special education groups, and technical career centers.
