Ten Regional Educational Laboratories are funded by the Institute of Education Sciences to bridge research, policy, and practice so as to serve state and local education agencies, communities, and schools. Under the guidance and direction of their governing boards, the laboratories conduct applied research and development, disseminate knowledge about best practice, and provide technical assistance. The laboratories also assess the educational needs of their regions, provide opportunities for state and regional gatherings on vital topics, and work jointly as a laboratory network.
