MREA is the only advocate exclusively for Greater Minnesota school districts.
Under the leadership of school board members, administrators, teachers and community members, MREA focuses on what puts first the education, growth and development of learners to bring about our best possible future.
School districts across Greater Minnesota are seeing the benefits of the MREA-led Ag2School agriculture credit for school facility bonds, currently at 55% and scheduled to increase to 70% by 2023.
Further, MREA joined many public education lobbying and parent advocacy groups to make a major push for buying down the special education cross-subsidy.
Our collective work was effective, leading the Education Conference Committee to
consider implementing a formula to pay each district for 40% of their local special education cross-subsidies.
