language arts/literacy, mathematics and science to map the landscape of 
the Mid-Atlantic region and to inform policy and practice data-driven 
decision-making. After collecting information from interviews with key 
LEA staff from each REL Mid-Atlantic district, the lab will produce a 
foundational database from which to analyze trends and strategically 
develop appropriate research and evaluation agendas. A descriptive 
report summarizing the adopted K-12 curricula in the region and a user-
friendly on-line interface will also be developed.
