ICF to support federal education efforts

Consulting and technology services provider ICF International has been awarded a five-year contract worth nearly $33 million to support federal education efforts.

The Fairfax-based company said Wednesday that it will lead the Institute of Education Sciences' Regional Education Laboratory through the U.S. Department of Education.

ICF says it will focus on helping the Education Department with research in dropout prevention, teacher effectiveness, rural education, and early childhood education. The company says it will provide assessment of needs, maintenance and refinement of research alliances, as well as other support for all 10 Regional Education Laboratories throughout the U.S.
