Our Work

REL Central works in collaboration with school districts, state departments of education, and other stakeholders to address high-leverage needs in our region. Our work centers on three main activities:

  • Conducting applied research to solve practical problems and foster deeper understanding of education challenges and processes.
  • Disseminating current, actionable research evidence, and engaging with practitioners and policymakers in understanding that evidence.
  • Providing training, coaching, and technical support related to the application and use of credible research to meet the needs of our stakeholders.
