Every Student • Every Day • Every Region
Welcome to the NMRECA
The New Mexico Regional Education Cooperatives Association (NMRECA) is comprised of ten regional education cooperatives. We are located throughout New Mexico, supporting 68 districts (most of them rural), charter schools, and state-supported schools. In addition, NMRECA members work directly with the New Mexico Public Education Department on state-wide projects and initiatives.
The NMRECA is affiliated with the NM Coalition of Educational Leaders (NMCEL), the Association of Educational Service Agencies (AESA), the Association of School Business Officials (ASBO), and the Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development (ASCD).
A Message from the NMRECA President
The 2020 legislative session is now over and HB2 is waiting for the governor's signature. Funding for the New Mexico RECs passed. The legislature went with the LFC recommendation of $1.1 million for the ten RECs. We will see approximately a $6,000.00 increase for each REC. We worked hard as a collaborative body this past year to build marketing materials and relationships with other agencies and with our friends at the PED. This is the first increase in funding the RECs have received since 2006. We have an NMRECA meeting on March 11 and will be discussing our strategy starting in April to meet with LFC, LESC, and key legislators in preparation for the next legislative session. New Mexico RECs. Serving Every Region, Every Student, Every Day.
The NMRECA is proud to support an upcoming event in May of 2020. The Western AESA Regional Summit will be in Jackson, Wyoming. The Western Regional Summit will be on May 21 and 22. There will be up to 50 executive directors from six states (NM, CO, UT, WY, ND, MT) meeting to discuss their organizational frameworks - entrepreneurial activities and network to exchange best practices.
