Region 17 Comprehensive Center

Building State Capacity to Improve Student Outcomes

As education leaders in Idaho and Montana work to improve student outcomes, close achievement gaps, and increase the quality of instruction, the Region 17 Comprehensive Center (CC) is at their side.

The Region 17 CC at Education Northwest is part of a national network of 19 CCs funded by the U.S. Department of Education. The network’s goal: Provide high-impact training and technical services to education leaders across the country. During this five-year grant cycle (Fall 2019 to 2024), the Region 17 CC is partnering with state and local education agencies and schools in Idaho and Montana—building their capacity to implement, measure, and sustain evidence-based initiatives that address state-defined priorities (such as serving low-income students, attracting and retaining highly effective educators, and supporting rural schools).
