Mission and Beliefs

The REMC Association of Michigan believes that it must provide proactive leadership to the Michigan educational community by participating with other organizations in building a vision that supports quality teaching and learning and provides equity to Michigan's pre-K-12 students.

The REMC Association of Michigan will accomplish this within the framework of the following principles:

  • Improve learning for all students.
  • Support constituents and improve teaching and learning statewide through future-focused collaboration, leadership and service.
  • Empower teachers to create high quality, engaging instructional environments when they have access to the necessary skills, tools and rich sources of information.
  • Provide effective cost savings through statewide cooperative purchasing, which allows local resources to be reallocated to enhance teaching and learning.
  • Advance statewide connectivity through delivery systems and infrastructure.
