Comprehensive Regional Assistance Centers

The Office of Elementary and Secondary Education funds the Comprehensive Assistance Centers to support schools as they engage in comprehensive school change efforts to continuously improve teaching, learning, and student achievement; and to help schools improve the academic performance of all students, especially those who have traditionally been underserved by the education system. Each Comprehensive Assistance Center provides high quality technical assistance and services to states, districts, and schools to facilitate the success of educational reform and school improvement initiatives.

Each assistance center serves as the single point of contact for requests for Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) services and programs; links educators to an established network of national, regional, and local service providers through a coordinated effort allowing convenient "one-stop shopping". Each center works to empower school personnel and to improve teaching and learning for all children; based on effective practices and the latest research. Priorities are to assist school wide programs, to help local education agencies that have the highest percentages of children in poverty, and to help all children achieve high standards.
