The Center for the Study of Education Policy (CSEP) has been included as a key partner in a five-year, $3.9 million EIR award by the U.S. Department of Education to the DuPage Regional Office of Education. The funds will be used to increase principal effectiveness in performance areas that lead to increases in student achievement, particularly in rural and high-need schools.
