Resources to Infuse Equity

Title IX Resources - Comprehensive Regional Assistance Centers

The fifteen Comprehensive Centers (CCs) are part of an emerging network of organizations providing assistance and information nationwide. Their role in this network is to help states, school districts, and schools in "meeting the needs of children served under ESEA, including children in high-poverty areas, migratory children, immigrant children, children with limited-English proficiency, neglected or delinquent children, homeless children and youth, Indian children, children with disabilities, and, where applicable, Alaska Native children and Native Hawaiian children" (Title XIII of ESEA). The CCs will focus on two priorities, as required by ESEA: assisting Title I schoolwide programs and helping local education agencies and schools funded by the Bureau of Indian Affairs -- that have the highest percentages or numbers of children in poverty.
