We're Sorry

The resource you are looking for is no longer available because it is either outdated or has been replaced. It was developed by the North Central Regional Educational Laboratory® (NCREL®), and the five-year federal contract to operate NCREL ended in 2005. Many of the resources developed under this contract remain accessible through the Learning Point Associates website. You may contact us with questions or to inquire about resources you may need in your education work.

The U.S. Department of Education has awarded Learning Point Associates its fifth consecutive contract to operate a regional educational laboratory—this time called REL Midwest instead of the North Central—a new name for a new scope of work. Details about the new work to be conducted by all 10 regional educational laboratories will be available in the coming months on a Regional Educational Laboratory Network website.
