About REL Appalachia

REL Appalachia serves Kentucky, Tennessee, Virginia, and West Virginia.

REL Appalachia is one of 10 federal Regional Educational Laboratories (RELs). We partner with regionally-based research alliances made up of schools, districts, and state departments of education to conduct research on K-12 education. We share the results with educators and help them put this new knowledge to work for students.

REL Appalachia collaborates with the alliances to address high-priority education needs. We are currently focused on three priorities:

  • Improving low-achieving schools
  • Ensuring students’ college and career readiness
  • Supporting effective teachers and school leaders
