Comprehensive Regional Assistance Centers
(Title X, Parts B and G - Amendments to the Educational Research, Development, Dissemination, and Improvement Act, Parts J and K)
The No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 transfers and redesignates the statutory language for the Comprehensive Regional Assistance Centers program from Part A of Title XIII of the ESEA, to part K of the Educational Research, Development, Dissemination, and Improvement Act of 1994 (ERDDIA), with no changes except for authorizing continued funding of the current Centers until the ERDDIA is reauthorized.
The Comprehensive Regional Assistance Centers program funds 15 university-based or non-profit centers that offer technical assistance to States, school districts, and schools on such topics as curriculum, instruction, assessments, professional development, program evaluation, meeting the needs of at-risk populations, creation of a safe and drug-free school environment, and implementing educational technologies.
