The mission of the Northeast Comprehensive Center (NCC) is to develop the capacity of the state education agencies in Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York, Rhode Island, and Vermont and their networks and agencies to assist districts and schools in improving achievement outcomes for all students. In doing so, we strive to engage with state education leaders in:
- Thinking systemically about the relationships among all elements to create coherence and articulate a common purpose;
- Using research-based findings and rigorous evidence to evaluate impact, refine practices, seek new solutions, and meet learners’ needs;
- Acting strategically to maximize opportunities and to make the best use of available resources; and
- Working collaboratively across leadership levels and organizations to leverage resources and overcome barriers.
