These schools are located in the following counties: Olmsted, Dodge, Steele, Freeborn, Rice, Goodhue, Winona, Wabasha, Houston, Fillmore, and Mower.

  • 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.
