Our Partnership With the St. Croix River Education District
Pine City is a member of the St. Croix River Education District (SCRED). SCRED was formed in 1991 and has been supporting Pine City for many years. In Minnesota, “Education Districts” help school districts to operate with greater fiscal efficiency by allowing them to share staff and services with neighboring school districts.
Support for Special Education
SCRED staff partner closely with our special education department. Leadership of our special education procedures, training for staff, curriculum, and much more is provided by SCRED staff in collaboration with Pine City leaders. Some SCRED staff work every day in Pine City schools (e.g., School Psychologists) while others are “itinerant” (e.g., Occupational Therapists), supporting multiple school districts.
Support for All Learners
SCRED staff are a critical part of our mission to prepare our students for the future. They work alongside Pine City staff to analyze grade-wide, school-wide, and district-wide data and develop plans for how the district can improve teaching and learning, foster positive school climates for students and staff, and use our resources efficiently. SCRED staff also help us to identify students who need additional support and to provide targeted interventions for those students.
Support for the Community
SCRED staff operate Adult Basic Education programs, Community Education programs, a summer school for Gifted & Talented students, early childhood family programs, and many other programs that benefit the Pine City community.
