Expanding Opportunities Through Rural Innovation

We’re living in an unprecedented age of agility, innovation, and acceleration. School systems across America are a driving force for creating educational experiences that make it possible for students to be equipped to thrive in this dynamic world of change. The need to be well-equipped and competitive is even more pronounced for young people living in remote areas with many of these areas experiencing significant economic decline. With over 20 percent of America’s K-12 students attending school located in rural communities, the need for a new vision for rural education is an imperative.

Join Battelle for Kids and other leaders of innovative rural networks from across the country to learn how they are leading the way in implementing innovative solutions within their unique contexts to ensure that all rural students are lifelong learners and contributors in the 21st century.
