Welcome to the Lower Pioneer Valley Educational Collaborative (LPVEC) !

LPVEC increases the capacity of school districts and supports the success of all students by providing high-quality, shared programs and services in a cost-effective manner.

Located in the greater Springfield area of western Massachusetts, LPVEC is a legal partnership of the Agawam, East Longmeadow, Hampden-Wilbraham, Longmeadow, Ludlow, Southwick-Tolland-Granville, and West Springfield school districts.

Our collaborative work is in three main areas:

Education Programs                   
  • Career/Technical Education (CTEC)
  • Special/Alternative Education
Business Programs
  • School Transportation
  • Municipal Medicaid Reimbursement
  • Energy/Group Purchasing
Educator Support
  • Curriculum/Instruction/Assessment
  • Job-Alike Groups
  • DESE District and School Assistance Center (DSAC)
  • Research & Development
While our primary responsibility is to our member districts, many of our offerings are also open to other districts and municipalities to help them save money and expand capacity.
