WE NEED YOUR INPUT

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 Southeast Comprehensive Center (SECC) at AIR is one of 15 regional comprehensive centers funded by the U.S. Department of Education. The centers provide training and technical assistance to state education agencies (SEAs) to enable them to assist school districts and schools in the implementation and administration of programs authorized under the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) and the use of research-based information and strategies. SECC works closely with SEAs in Alabama, Georgia, Mississippi, North Carolina, and South Carolina to support their efforts to implement, scale up, and sustain initiatives statewide and to lead and support their school districts and schools in improving student outcomes. Our partner in this project is RMC Research Corporation (RMC).
