The New York Comprehensive Center (NYCC) is one of 16 regional comprehensive centers that are federally funded to implement the mandates of the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB). In doing so, NYCC engages the New York State Education Department in using research-based findings and rigorous evidence. The Center provides technical assistance services to meet the Department’s priority needs and further the key initiatives of the US Department of Education. Additionally, the NYCC works with the State on emerging needs based on new statutes and policy mandates. The NYCC’s main focus is on those activities that have the greatest potential for developing the state’s capacity in helping improve student outcomes. EDC is one of several key partners on the NYCC, which is led by RMC Research Corporation.
