Region 10 Low Incidence Projects are sponsored by two federal grants: Low Incidence (LI) & Regional Comprehensive System for Personnel Development (R-CSPD). The projects are fiscally hosted by the Zumbro Education District, and serve all districts in SE Minnesota. These schools are located in the following counties: Olmsted, Dodge, Steele, Freeborn, Rice, Goodhue, Winona, Wabasha, Houston, Fillmore and Mower.
- Low Incidence (LI) refers to disability areas that occur rarely or in low numbers. The Minnesota Low Incidence Projects focuses on several categorical areas, including Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD), Deaf and Hard of Hearing (DHH), Deaf-Blindness (DB), Developmental Cognitive Disabilities Mild-Moderate & Severe Profound (DCD MM/SP), Other Health Disabilities (OHD), Physically Impaired (PI), Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), Vision Impairment (VI), and Severe Multiple Impairment (SMI).
- R-CSPD is a program that provides workshops, inservices, and other activities for persons in Region 10 who work with learners who have disabilities. This may include general and special educators, administrators, parents, paraprofessionals, and community service providers. The intent of this project is to assist personnel in providing exemplary educational programs in the least restrictive environment for students with disabilities.
- Support equitable and accessible educational services by utilizing a multi-tiered system of support, including Universal Design for Learning to meet academic standards for all learners, with a specific focus on those with low incidence disabilities.
- Support licensed and certified educational staff serving students with low incident disabilities in all eight regions by building local capacity through high quality retention and recruitment.

- Support access to equitable educational services across all eight (8) regional low incidence projects.
