Region 16 Comprehensive Center is one of 19 Regional Comprehensive Centers funded by the U.S. Department of
Education. Our center was created in 2019 to support state education agencies in Alaska, Oregon, and Washington.
As a consortium of 29 educational service districts, we engage state, regional, Tribal, school, and community
partners to create the conditions for students, educators, and communities to learn and thrive.
Our MISSION is to improve the quality and equity of the learning experience for each student by reimagining education systems.
Our VISION is transformed education systems rooted in place and grounded in the needs and knowledge of students, families, and communities.
- Prioritize Tribal sovereignty and equity. Education has the power to change lives. We challenge our current structures and reshape systems to create an environment where all learners can thrive.
- Engage communities. Distinct voices and unique experiences contribute to more robust educational approaches and resources. We clear barriers and support access to cultural wisdom.
- Collaborate and co-create. Our network of 29 educational service districts and our partners share stewardship
of this work. We distribute leadership and mindfully listen and learn.
