NRRITV Mission

NRRITV is a consortium of districts formed to provide technological service and support to its members. Member districts include Cavalier, Edinburg, Grafton, North Valley Career and Technology Center, Park River, Pembina, Walhalla, St. Thomas and Valley.

ITV allows schools districts to offer courses that previously were not offered because of low enrollments or lack of certified staff in particular curriculum areas. 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 inservice training sessions on the system. Staff members can easily meet after school without having to leave their respective buildings.

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