As the authorizing agency, the U.S. Department of Education provides a variety of information and services to facilitate and support comprehensive school reform. The majority of the activities for CSR occur within the Department's Office of Elementary and Secondary Education (OESE), and the Institute for Education Sciences (IES).

    • The Institute for Education Sciences (IES) The Institute for Education Sciences consists of the National Center for Education Research, the National Center for Education Statistics and the National Center for Education Evaluation and Regional Assistance. The Institute’s National Center for Education Research (NCER) furnishes support for new research and development centers dedicated, in part, to CSR: the Regional Educational Laboratories (RELs) and the National Research and Development Centers.

      The Institute for Education Sciences also established the What Works Clearinghouse (WWC) in 2002 to provide educators, policymakers, researchers, and the public with a central and trusted source of scientific evidence of what works in education.
