In America, 57% of public school districts are considered "rural."
However, rural schools are rarely the focus of studies and policy analyses. In addition, federal regulations too often take a one-size-fits-all approach towards school achievement, failing to consider the unique challenges of rural school districts. What types of challenges do rural schools face when implementing technology? What are the five crucial components of a rural school turnaround strategy? We delve into these topics and provide a blueprint for how to implement an intervention program as part of a broader rural turnaround strategy.
1) A case study reviewing the challenges for rural schools and school districts post-ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act) and the characteristics of successful instructional technology programs based on a variety of research studies.
2) A step-by-step guide to vetting and implementing an intervention solution for your school or district turnaround policy.
