Strengthening Communities Through Rural Innovation

Innovating education and learning opportunities in rural communities can change the economic and social trajectory of entire communities. Join two leaders in rural innovation to learn about one school’s journey in the heart of Alabama’s Black Belt Region and build a roadmap for innovation in your rural community. Through exploration and discussion around the competency-based, personalized, project-based and place-based model, you’ll leave with action steps for your community.
