The Region X Equity Assistance Center is located at Education Northwest's Equity Program in Portland, Oregon. The Equity Assistance Center is one of 10 regional equity assistance centers in the nation funded by the U.S. Department of Education.
The Equity Assistance Center helps public schools and their communities incorporate educational equity into policies, procedures, and classroom practices to ensure that all students receive what they need to succeed academically.
At the request of school boards and other responsible governmental agencies, the Equity Assistance Center provides training and technical assistance on issues related to equity in education in order to ensure that all children, regardless of race, sex, or national origin, have equal access to quality education and the opportunity to develop high academic standards in reading, math, language arts, and other core subject areas.
We are funded to provide training and technical assistance to K–12 public schools within Region X at no cost or through a cost-share arrangement. See our regional map. Our region consists of Alaska, Hawaii, Idaho, Oregon, Washington, Territory of American Samoa, Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, Territory of Guam, Federated States of Micronesia (Chuuk, Kosrae, Pohnpei, Yap), Republic of the Marshall Islands, and Republic of Palau.
