The webinar recording can be accessed here.

More than half of the school districts and about one-third of public schools in the United States are situated in rural areas. Rural districts have unique challenges, ranging from poverty and sizeable travel distances to a lack of affordable, reliable and robust internet access. However, since rural school districts tend to have smaller student populations, they can also leverage unique opportunities. Rural districts may be nimbler when it comes to dealing with change and frequently have strong community involvement. Teacher retention can also be comparatively strong. 

Listen to the conversation with four rural school district superintendents as they discuss the challenges and opportunities that are unique to rural school districts when leading digital transformations that change how teachers teach and students learn, as well as impact the way school districts operate. Each superintendent also shares the leadership strategies and technology tools they have implemented during the past year in dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic to assure that all students in their districts continue learning. Plans for how the schools in these rural school districts will operate during the 2021-2022 school year are also reviewed. 

This edWeb podcast is of particular value to school superintendents, K-12 school and district leaders, and aspiring leaders.
