REL Pacific

About Our Region

Regional Educational Laboratory (REL) Pacific serves local education agencies in American Samoa, the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, the Federated States of Micronesia, Guam, Hawai'i, the Republic of the Marshall Islands, and the Republic of Palau. Given its geographic, political, cultural, educational, and economic diversity, the region served by REL Pacific is unlike any other in the REL system. While there are similarities among the islands, each of our entities has unique characteristics that enrich its communities and the rest of the region. The dashboard below offers detailed data for each jurisdiction from the National Center for Education Statistics and other sources.
