MEMBER DISTRICTS

STRONGER TOGETHER


Runestone Area Education District in partnership with the school districts of Alexandria, Brandon-Evansville, Minnewaska, Osakis and Parkers Prairie work together to serve our special education students. We believe students who receive the appropriate help and support can develop the skills necessary to keep pace with traditional classroom settings. We aim to teach all of our students how to leverage their strengths in areas that may be difficult, and how to search for the tools in order to to succeed.

       RUNESTONE                  ALTERNATIVE                SCHOOL 

Alternative schools can be a great, and even life-changing, option for students who haven't thrived in traditional high schools.

The RAS uses a more non-traditional method of teaching and we are able to be  flexible in accommodating student needs.
