Thank you for visiting our website!  The James and Susan Rex Institute for Educational Renewal and Partnership (RIERP) is a service-oriented organization in existence to serve and sustain Winthrop University‘s Richard W. Riley’s College of Education initiatives, including the work conducted through the NETwork of Sustained, Collaborative, Ongoing Preparation for Educators (NetSCOPE) and Network of Leaders for Equity, Achievement, and Development (NetLEAD) projects.  NetSCOPE recognizes teacher quality as the most important factor in raising student achievement.   NetLEAD establishes a network that connects clusters of rural, high-need school districts, Winthrop University, and other educational agencies in order to provide collaborative and ongoing professional development and curriculum reform.
