The Florida and the Islands Regional Comprehensive Center is one of 16 regional centers funded by the U.S. Department of Education. The mission of all of these centers is to help low-performing districts and schools close achievement gaps and meet the goals of No Child Left Behind. This Center serves the state of Florida, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. They offer technical assistance in four main areas. The first is the implementation of school improvement efforts to help meet Adequate Yearly Progress requirements. They identify and adopt instructional and assessment methods that have been proven effective through scientifically based research, especially for students with disabilities. Thirdly, they aid in the designing of programs and strategies and allocating resources to recruit, train and retain talented teachers and school leaders. Finally, they work to enhance assessment and accountability systems.
