Arizona Regional Education Service and Support Centers are voluntary structures implemented by County School Superintendents and/or alliance of Education Service Agencies that provide locally defined and accessible professional development, educational services and technical services to address the statewide high priority initiatives. The Arizona Regional Centers below have partnered with the Arizona Department of Education to provide training and professional development aligned to Arizona’s Common Core Standards.
Five Regional Centers are a key implementation mechanism for helping school and district personnel transition smoothly to enhanced standards and rigorous assessments, use data to continuously improve instruction, and ensure successful postsecondary outcomes for students.
In collaboration with the Arizona Department of Education (ADE) and the Governor’s Office of Education Innovation (GOEI), these Centers will provide regionally-based service, support and technical assistance to LEAs in successfully implementing Arizona’s education reform plans through Race to the Top.
