We're excited to share some recent press about one of our Rural Teacher Corps Network partners! University of Wyoming. part of RSC's Northern Rockies Regional Hub, received a $25,000 Catalyst planning grant in 2021 from Rural Schools Collaborative to launch a new Rural Teacher Corps. They leaned into the collaborative cohort model to help future rural teachers inspire one another, and also used local partnerships with place-based education experts, Teton Science Schools to design and launch this new initiative.
Just two short years after RSC's planning grant, University of Wyoming has significantly increased their supports and programming for rural students, as highlighted in this recent article from Casper Star Tribune. Read the full story here!
