The North Central region is composed of four States — Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Wyoming — a geographic region of 318,833 sq. mi. (8.6% of the nation’s geographic area) serving approximately 946,246 children under the age of 18 (1.3% of the national population of children). Although there are urban and suburban areas, the North Central Region is predominantly rural.
The North Central Comprehensive Center (NCCC) provides high-quality technical assistance to help State Education Agencies (SEAs) build their capacity to implement state-level initiatives and support district- and school-level initiatives that improve educational outcomes for all students, close achievement gaps, and improve the quality of instruction. Building capacity includes helping SEAs:
Build internal organizational strength through such activities as creating sustainable organizational structures and effective performance management systems,
Build staff expertise within SEA structures to ensure that districts and schools are provided high-quality services and supports,
Align programs and policies by strengthening connections between different organizational channels (e.g. divisions or grant programs), and
Build organizational capacity to support district- and school-level implementation of effective practices to improve student outcomes.
