Mountain Plains Regional Resource Center

We are a U.S Department of Education, Office of Special Education Programs funded project that helps build the capacity of State Education Agencies and Lead Agencies in improving programs and services for infants, toddlers, children and youth with disabilities. The MPRRC is part of the Center for Technical Assistance for Excellence in Special Education (TAESE), which is the technical assistance division of the Center for Persons with Disabilities at Utah State University.

About the MPRRC

Mountain Plains Regional Resource Center (MPRRC) is one of six Regional Resource Centers and is part of the Federal and Regional Resource Center Program (RRFC), which provides services to the 50 States, the District of Columbia, the U.S. Trust Territories, and the schools of the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA). 

The MPRRC serves Arizona, the Bureau of Indian Education, Colorado, Kansas, Montana, Nebraska, New Mexico, North Dakota, South Dakota, Utah, and Wyoming.

The entire program is part of the Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP), which is part of the U.S. Department of Education.

The MPRRC works with Part C and Part B programs in eleven states around their State Performance Plans (SPP), Annual Performance Reports (APR), and Levels of Determinations.

The MPRRC engages in a variety of activities as it provides assistance.  Typically included among assistance activities are those listed below:

  • Direct technical assistance with States, Lead Agencies, schools, and parents
  • Assist States in all areas of special education general supervision
  • Provides relevant information to client States and conducts information searches
  • Expert consultation on critical issues confronting State and local special educators

Technical assistance provided to the States is determined through the State special education directors and finalized in Technical Assistance Agreements.  These agreements spell out, in considerable detail, what activities will be conducted.

Information about technical assistance activities are available on-line as part of OSEP's Matrix project.

Information requests can be made through the main portal information services link or by contacting Shauna Crane at or .
