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.
