REEd’s History


The UC Davis School of Education’s REEd Center is a university-based intermediary with deep ties to the TK-12 education community across California. Established in 1990 as the Center for Cooperative Research and Extension Services in Schools (CRESS), CRESS became a professional home for teacher leader networks through the support of California Subject Matter Projects. In 2013, the Center was re-branded to become Resourcing Excellence in Education (REEd).

Today, REEd works to move research findings into practices that build the capacity of education systems to improve teaching and learning. REEd engages in research practice partnerships that spread and deepen professional growth systems in rural, urban and suburban school districts across the state.
