What is SCRED?

SCRED manages special education services for our six member districts (Chisago Lakes, East Central, Hinckley-Finlayson, North Branch, Pine City, and Rush City School Districts). Special Education Administrative services are provided by Nicole Woodward, Director of Special Education, and Jennifer DuFresne, Jennifer Danielson, Joel Anderson and Vicki Courts, Special Services Supervisors. SCRED has services coordinators who specialize in the following areas: Early Childhood (Rob Benner and Kelly Demers), Low Incidence Disabilities (Connie Sim), Social Behavior (Ry Bostrom and Courtney Strelow), Academics (Barb Scierka, Jennifer Lake, Jodi Henderson, and Wendy Stuttgen) and Social Emotional Learning (Nic van Oss). These services coordinators help with staff development in our member districts and assist teachers in programming for students with more intensive needs. While each school district employs special education teachers, speech clinicians, and paraprofessionals, SCRED provides some direct service providers and related services staff. Related services staff include School Psychologists, School Social Workers, Physical Therapists, Occupational Therapists, and Audiologists. We also provide teachers who are specialists in the area of Deaf/Hard of Hearing, Vision Impairments, Developmental and Adapted Physical Education, Traumatic Brain Injury, Physical Impairments and Other Health Disabilities.
