The Montana Regional Education Service Area III (MRESA3) collaborative partnership consists of the Alliance for Curriculum Enhancement, Public Schools in Region III, Montana State University Billings, Region III Comprehensive System of Personnel Development, and the Montana Small School Alliance.
Montana Regional Education Service Area III is part of the Montana Professional Development Partnership project funded by the Office of Public Instruction through ESEA Title II, Part A State Level Activities award and IDEA Part B programs. MRESA3 provides service for the following counties: Big Horn, Carbon, Fergus, Golden Valley, Judith Basin, Musselshell, Petroleum, Stillwater, Sweet Grass, Wheatland, and Yellowstone.
At MRESA3, we collaborate with our schools, communities and other Regional Education Service Areas to promote quality instruction in order to maximize student performance. Our mission is to improve achievement for all students by coordinating professional development and education services for all educators.
The Advisory Council offers districts, consortia, and community service providers the opportunity to develop meaningful and sustainable collaborative relations among professional development providers. The Council meets and analyzes regional data and determines the need for professional development. The Council then organizes and facilitates high quality professional development offerings to meet the determined needs. Data is collected on effectiveness and satisfaction and is used to plan the next series of professional development opportunities.
