Our District

Minnesota Valley Education District (MVED) provides resources and guidance to schools and families who serve children with physical, mental, or emotional disabilities.

It is our mission to collaborate with member districts to deliver comprehensive programs and services that enrich students' lives and prepares them for the future. Our vision is preparing learners for life.

Serving Our Community

We believe in the worth and dignity of all people and that all children can learn. Our specialists offer consulting and training services to our member districts and work hand-in-hand with parents to ensure proper screening and due process. We want all children to receive the services they need to thrive. 

We also offer a direct intervention program at Minnesota Valley Schools (MVS). In this setting, we provide individualized academic plans for students identified as needing more structure, support, and modifications than can be accommodated in the traditional academic setting. 

We Believe:

  • Open communication is essential for working collaboratively for student, staff, and system success.
  • In interventions using emotional and academic support.
  • Working together with parents/guardians we have the ability to play a critical role from birth throughout life.
  • In rigor, relevance, and relationships.
  • All students can learn and be successful.
  • Every child has value and deserves access to a quality and equitable education to help them succeed in life.
  • Challenges create opportunity.
  • In a safe and caring environment for learning.
