NWECS is celebrating our 30th year!


NWECS provides equitable access to education for our rural students. Our K-12, University of Wisconsin, and Wisconsin Technical College programming and opportunities are all within reach for our students over a fully interactive videoconferencing environment. 


NWECS students utilize a variety of interactive technologies from distance learning classrooms, mobile video carts, desktop/laptop computers, and mobile devices to expand their educational opportunities.

NWECS course programming for participating K-12 school districts and higher education partners is a collaborative effort. Each year, members come together to design the upcoming academic year’s course offerings. NWECS members provide and help promote classes to serve the needs of all students. NWECS teachers share their knowledge and love of education with students outside of their district.


NWECS also facilitates enrichment opportunities like virtual field trips to museums, zoos, national parks, wildlife centers, and the North Pole.  We invite guest speakers, career and field experts to our schools via video conferencing. Our students participate in High Quiz Bowl competitions and ACT Prep classes via live interactive video conferencing.


Current NWECS course catalogs can be found on the Course Catalogs page. Students can talk to their high school counselor. Please contact us with any questions.
