New Guide Offers Rural Schools Strategies for Going Personalized

Apr 17, 2017

RURAL RESOURCES: More than half of public school districts in the U.S. are rural, and now the Future Ready Schools (FRS) program wants to help them personalize learning. The organization has released a guidebook of free resources aimed specifically at rural districts, containing FRS’ framework for a personalized instructional model, as well as a five-step planning process for district leaders.

In a prepared statement, Bob Wise, current president of the Alliance for Excellent Education, which leads FRS, says he’s seen firsthand the unique challenges facing rural schools, from teacher recruitment to tight budgets. But he also recognizes that rural schools “have tremendous assets, most notably their tight-knit communities that create trusting relationships among teachers, students, and families.” For him, personalized learning allows schools to “capitalize on these assets to increase student engagement and improve outcomes.”
