Central Comprehensive Center
The Central Comprehensive Center (C3) at the University of Oklahoma Outreach uses its High Impact Technical Assistance (HI-TA) Model to provide high quality technical assistance to Colorado, Kansas, and Missouri. C3’s support focuses on key initiatives, aligns with the Content Centers, and builds the capacity of state education agencies to implement, scale-up, sustain key initiatives to lead and support their local education agencies in comprehensive educational reform to improve student outcomes.
The HI-TA Model focuses on four critical roles:
- Building relationships and systems across organizations
- Facilitating critical thinking and problem solving
- Providing technical assistance based on best practices and evidence-based decision making
- Delivering information in response to priority needs
The HI-TA Model incorporates capacity building elements to increase human, organization, structural, material, and political capacity resulting in positive high impact outcomes.
