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.
