North Dakota Regional Education Associations

Education & Cooperation Grows Through Regional Education Associations (formerly Joint Powers Agreements)

School districts across North Dakota are taking advantage of Regional Education Associations or REAs (formerly known as Joint Powers Agreements or JPAs) to improve educational services to students and to enhance cooperation in communities and geographic regions.  As the map illustrates (courtesy of the North Dakota Department of Public Instruction), REAs now include 93% of all public school districts in the state, covering 92% of the land mass and improving services for over 98% of all public school students.

Within North Dakota, there are eight Regional Education Associations.  Below are links to each REA.
