Director's Request for Comments on the REL program

The Institute of Education Sciences (IES) supports ten Regional Education Laboratories (RELs) across the country, which are charged with supporting applied research and development, disseminating school improvement practices widely, and providing technical assistance to education agencies in their regions. As we approach the time for awarding new contracts for the RELs, we are looking to improve our services to REL stakeholders—those of you working on the ground to make a difference in the lives of school children.

Interested in providing suggestions on how to make the REL program as effective, relevant and useful as possible?
