About NRRITV

The Northern Red River (NRR) ITV provides distance learning opportunities to member schools using telecommunications technology. NRRITV schools understand the importance of education as a lifelong learning experience for people of all ages. Secondary and college-level courses, adult education classes, staff in-service, and meetings are available over the ITV system.

NRRITV is a consortium consisting of Cavalier, Grafton, North Border (at Walhalla and Pembina), Park River Area, Valley-Edinburg, and North Valley Career and Technology Center in northeastern North Dakota.

Mission

NRRITV was formed to provide technical service and support to its members. Member districts include Cavalier, Grafton, North Border (at Walhalla and Pembina), Park River Area, Valley-Edinburg, and North Valley Career and Technology Center.

ITV allows school districts to offer courses that were not previously available because of low enrollments or lack of certified staff. The network allows districts to share both student population and staff resources without transporting students or instructors.

The system allows access to staff meetings and in-service training sessions. Staff members can easily meet after school without having to leave their respective buildings.

Community education can also be enhanced through the system. Community members can participate in a wide variety of educational programs without traveling further than their local high school.

Goals

  • Enhance the curriculum offerings in member districts.
  • Provide staff in-service.
  • Provide community education and service.
  • Investigate new technologies for school use.
  • Provide student, staff, and community access to technology.
  • Increase sharing of resources among districts.
