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).

Our NM RECA executive director is Bobbie Gutierrez. Bobbie serves as our state executive director and oversees the work of the association. If you or your organization would like to meet with the RECs, please contact Bobbie via email. Please take a moment to read Bobbie's biography to learn more.

A Message from our Association President

It is humbling to serve as the president of the RECA. The Regional Education Cooperatives continue the journey of providing effective supports to our member school districts during this time of renewal in education. The 10 REC executive directors, with their team of deputies and assistants, along with our RECA executive director, continue to meet weekly with educational partners including the NMPED, LFC, LESC, and others. These partnerships allow us all to support NM teachers and students in a comprehensive manner that is strategic across time and in planning for the future. Here’s to a great 2022–2023 school year!
