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.

Mississippi Strengthening System of Recognition, Accountability and Support
Continued technical assistance in the development of the Mississippi Department of Education's System of Recognition, Accountability, and Support (SRAS) operational manual that describes the state's framework for delivering differentiated services to districts/schools, how it will engage stakeholders in providing input around the quality of services provided to districts/schools, how the MDE will continuously evaluate the SRAS in order to make informed decisions about and effectively/efficiently deliver services, and the structure that will be implemented to build the capacity of districts/school to lead the school improvement work at the local educational agency level. Additionally the MDE will create a structure for ensuring these tasks are aligned with the tasks outlined in the flexibility waiver.
