Regional Centers

Our regional centers expand Perpich’s ability to partner with local school districts to serve schools and teachers throughout the state on a localized basis. Our regional center directors can tailor professional development to targeted area needs and share methods and innovative practices.

Our centers allow for better statewide distribution of funds and professionals as well as the ability to respond to emerging or changing needs. Current efforts focus in three locations, but will expand to more areas of the state as funding becomes available. 

As our regional centers create and sustain partnerships with schools, artists and arts organizations in their areas, they help Perpich to spread concepts of quality arts teaching and education to hundreds of teachers, teaching artists and thousands of students in Minnesota.

Current regional partners include:

Albert Lea School District

Elk River School District

Duluth School District
