NORC partners with a variety of education stakeholders to deliver state-of-the-art, evidence-based technical assistance that improves access and outcomes.

Schools are always striving to serve their students more effectively. Well-researched, carefully planned, and thoughtfully executed technical assistance (TA) can help ensure that students, teachers, and administrators improve outcomes and achieve lasting structural change. 

We offer TA on every element of program improvement, implementation, capacity building, and sustainability. Our TA services range from needs sensing and strategic planning to implementing communities of practice and professional development. To support a wide range of education topics, we maintain a pool of highly experienced subject matter experts, ensuring that our services are tailored and meet the highest quality standards. We have extensive knowledge of federal, state, and local education systems and experience supporting key program offices in the U.S. Department of Education. Our services are grounded in evidence-based, equitable, and culturally responsive practices.
