Our Scope of Work

Helping rural schools and communities get better together!

The Rural Schools Collaborative is a project-based organization committed to authentic work in support of its mission. This includes the following signature efforts:

Periodically RSC has offered planning grants, provided technical assistance to regional efforts, and convened thought leaders and rural advocates. We consistently pursue social marketing strategies like our "I am a Rural teacher!" campaign.

We welcome suggestions on how we can help initiate or strengthen school and community partnerships. In addition, we are dedicated to donor and financial transparency. Please contact us with suggestions or requests for information at info@ruralschoolscollaborative.org .
