Education Northwest is proud to be home to one of the nation’s 15 regional Comprehensive Centers. We have served our region in this capacity since 1996, helping to build the capacity of state education agencies (SEAs) in the five Northwest states (Alaska, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, and Washington).
Funded by the U.S. Department of Education, the Northwest Comprehensive Center (NWCC) provides high-impact training and technical assistance to SEA staff in planning, implementing, monitoring, and sustaining initiatives in priority areas such as college and career readiness, educator effectiveness, school improvement, and rigorous, college- and career-ready standards implementation.
The state has benefited because they [NWCC] have been a valuable support to the Department of Education. The work we have done with partner districts and partner stakeholders has been stronger and better quality. They are as invested in the work as we are.
