Education Promotes Innovation

  • We offer education services to school districts in the Arrowhead Region of Northeast Minnesota. From professional development for educational leaders to Knowledge Bowl competition for students, education is an important service. The education programs are led by skilled staff who are committed to providing quality training and resources to our members. We understand the significance of making an impact for the students in our region.

    Student Programs, Online Learning, Regional Center of Excellence, and Professional Development programs are strong at Northeast Service Cooperative. Don't hesitate to contact our department leaders and get connected with one of our educational opportunities today. Executive Director Paul Brinkman has worked with school administrators during his tenure to promote education as a valuable service for the school districts in our region. He leads the education team initiatives that impact classroom learning and provide quality training efforts for our educators.

    Our Board of Directors, the majority who serve on school district boards, have carried out their passion for this topic while serving. Their insight and care for the children in our region to receive a high-quality education is evident in their roles. The Northeast Service Cooperative has been serving school districts for more than four decades.
