Take the scenic RURAL ROUTE!

Rural America

We are pleased to present the Rural Schools Collaborative’s annual report, The Rural Route, highlighting RSC’s third year. This road map invites you to explore our world of grassroots projects and initiatives.

The Rural Schools Collaborative strengthens the bonds between schools and communities through place-based engagement, rural philanthropy, and developing teacher-leaders. We implement this mission in four specific ways: supporting Rural Teacher Corps projects, promoting school foundations, administering Grants in Place, and collaborating on the Place Network Schools.

This past year 10 regional hubs have organically emerged in response to the RSC’s mission and purpose. Remarkable! Our unique “hub” concept has enabled a variety of regional collaborations to shape and implement customized, mission-aligned projects and programs.

The Rural Schools Collaborative’s modest administrative structure is supported by a board-driven 3-year capitalization plan approximating $300,000. This lean development model allows us to stay keenly focused on our mission. We appreciate the organizations, entities, and individuals who have rallied to support the RSC and its work with rural schools and communities across the country.

Thank you!

RSC Board Chair
Sioux Falls, South Dakota
