Region 9 Education Cooperative

Message from the Executive Director

Thanksgiving is quickly approaching and I want to wish everyone a happy holiday! We continue to have a very active Region 9 with excellence happening in all departments. I was in Santa Fe at the end of last month to help represent the RECs in NM to the Legislative Finance Committee and make our annual request for legislative funding. The RECs request annually an allocation from the state legislature, and this year our initial request appears to have been well received. I spoke to the LFC on behalf of some of the work we do at Region 9 and I can relay that it made me proud to represent our organization and the work we do. We have completed the annually required Region 9 Annual Performance Report that is sent to the PED. You can find a copy of our most recent report for 17/18 on our Region 9 Web Page. If you read it you will agree, it is powerful to think of the supports provided from birth to adulthood from a single organization. I also want to remind everyone our Region 9 offices are closed the week of November 19–23.
