RESC Alliance

As a RESC agency, LEARN works in collaboration to equip educators and learners with the tools they need to thrive in a rapidly evolving world. We craft an array of program and service offerings designed to overcome obstacles and nurture success for each learner. LEARN is the RESC for southeast Connecticut.

What are Regional Educational Service Centers (RESCs)?
Regional Educational Service Centers (RESCs) are nonprofit, fee-for-service, public education agencies with a mission to provide quality, cost-effective education resources, programs, and services to the state's public schools. Since their formation in 1972 (10-66a), RESCs have saved public schools millions of dollars. 

In the 1990s, the six RESCs formed the RESC Alliance to create greater access to resources and savings for all Connecticut public schools. Through the Alliance, access to one RESC means access to the resources at any RESC. 

- Created by Connecticut General Statute 10-66a on August 1, 1972
- Governed by an executive board composed of local school districts' Board of Education members
- Responsive to local needs and interdistrict opportunities
- Dedicated to supporting local school districts to improve teaching, learning, and student achievement
- Committed to providing high-quality and affordable solutions that address regional needs
- Collaborators that facilitate partnerships with many different key stakeholders including the Connecticut         State Department of Education (CSDE) and the Office of Early Childhood (OEC)
