Collaborate.  Innovate.  Advocate.

                                  Our Mission Statement

Through data-based decision making, meaningful collaboration, and implementation of innovative, evidence-based practices, the St. Croix River Education District will be a leader in maximizing outcomes for all learners.

The St. Croix River Education District (SCRED) serves the school districts of East Central, Chisago Lakes, Hinckley-Finlayson, North Branch, Pine City, and Rush City.  We also have three federal setting IV programs hosted in our member districts (SOAR, Pathway to Change, and Vision), as well as two transition programs (The Chisago County Schools' Life Work Center and The Pine County Transition Program).  In addition, we provide support to the TRIO Wolf Creek Charter School. 

We Are SCRED. Together We Are Stronger.

Guided by a strategic action plan developed with member district staff and administration, SCRED offers high-quality professional learning experiences and onsite support and consultation that promote collaboration and innovation in education while advocating for the unique learning needs of all students.

Positive Happenings

The 2019 DAPE Challenge, May 7th @ Pine City High School
Students Participate in DAPE Challenge Activities
This year's Developmental Adapted Physical Education (DAPE) Challenge was hosted by Pine City. It's a great field trip for the students; they enjoy traveling to a different school in the St. Croix River Education District (SCRED) each spring. Students like practicing for the events and wearing t-shirts with school colors or logos; some of the students wear their school's team jerseys. Pine City High School students led nine activities which included the long jump, softball throw, Frisbee toss, snap bowling, and soccer kick. Students are excited to participate along with other DAPE students in the area. They love being a part of the DAPE celebration! The 2020 DAPE Challenge is scheduled to be hosted by East Central. We hope to see you there!
