OSEP is seeking stakeholder feedback on Innovative Strategies and Best Practices to Attract, Prepare, and Retain Effective Personnel. If you would like to provide feedback on this very important topic, please follow this link to share your input.

The Pacific Regional Comprehensive Center (PRCC) is part of a nationwide network of technical assistance centers established by the U.S. Department of Education.  The Comprehensive Centers were created in 1996 to provide state educational agencies (SEAs) with high-quality, relevant, and useful information, resources, tools, and consultative expertise so that they have increased capacity to lead and sustain state-level initiatives that result in improved outcomes for all students.

The PRCC works collaboratively with the state education agencies in American Samoa; the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands (CNMI); the Federated States of Micronesia (FSM)--Chuuk, Kosrae, Pohnpei, and Yap; Guam; Hawai'i; the Republic of the Marshall Islands; and the Republic of Palau to support their efforts to implement, scale up, and sustain priority initiatives.  PRCC is based at Pacific Resources for Education and Learning (PREL).
