Welcome to the NMRECA

The New Mexico Regional Education Cooperatives Association (NMRECA) is comprised of nine regional education cooperatives. We are located throughout New Mexico, supporting 63 rural school districts, 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).
