Who We Are

The Southeast Comprehensive Center (SECC) at SEDL is one of 15 regional comprehensive centers funded by the U.S. Department of Education. The centers provide training and technical assistance to state education agencies (SEAs) to enable them to assist school districts and schools in the implementation and administration of programs authorized under the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) and the use of research-based information and strategies. SECC works closely with SEAs in Alabama, Georgia, Mississippi, North Carolina, and South Carolina to support their efforts to implement, scale up, and sustain initiatives statewide and to lead and support their school districts and schools in improving student outcomes. Partners in this project include the American Institutes for Research and RMC Research.

Project Highlight

North Carolina Intermediate Structures

The NCDPI has relied on Race to the Top and locally funded regional intermediate structures to support LEAs and charter schools to increase academic achievement and teacher leader effectiveness. With the addition of state and local funding reductions, LEA capacity and intermediate support structures vary from region to region. SECC will assist NCDPI in assessing the effectiveness of the components of the existing structures and in investigating alternative approaches for the allocation of programs and services to develop a plan to revise the current structures and sub-structures.

Project in: North Carolina.
