Upcoming REL Mid-Atlantic Events and Webinars

About the REL Program

Now, perhaps more than ever, educators and education stakeholders need access to the best research and analysis that will help them understand where and how to make improvements in education. One way that the U.S. Department of Education's Institute of Education Sciences (IES) meets this need is through the Regional Educational Laboratories (RELs).

There are 10 RELs, each of which serves a legislatively designated region of the United States. The primary mission of the 2012-2017 REL Program is to build research alliances with education practitioners and policymakers to help states and districts use data to answer important issues of policy and practice. » more info
