Thank you to MREA for your leadership during this Distance Learning period. Your communication was outstanding. When massive amounts of information were flooding my email box, the MREA communication was clear and very appreciated!

Rachel UdstuenSuperintendent, Spring Grove Schools

I love your information. I can glance at it on my mobile and read just the little bit to be informed. That’s all the time I have for. If it were longer, I wouldn’t read it.

Lori DudleyBoard Member, Worthington Schools

There is a wealth of information which comes out of MREA, and I appreciate having an idea as to what is going on outside of the Twin Cities. I appreciate what MREA does, and the communication has been top-notch.

Bob TangenSpanish Teacher, Perham-Dent Schools

If someone would have told me a couple of months ago that we would see so many of the bills affecting rural schools pass through all these hurdles, I would have been shocked. Your advocacy has made this happen and I appreciate your efforts.

Bryan ThygesonSuperintendent, Dilworth-Glyndon- Felton School District

MREA does a remarkable job and is without a doubt my best source for legislative information and state educational information.
