Future Ready Schools Releases Publication “A Guidebook for Success: Strategies for Implementing Personalized Learning in Rural Schools”

rural_guidebook_cover-232x300To prepare all students for college and a career, many schools and districts nationwide have turned to “personalized learning,” a student-centered approach that tailors instruction to students’ unique strengths and needs while engaging them in challenging, standards-based academic content. Largely an urban phenomenon, personalized learning can also address the unique challenges facing rural schools, and a new publication released today by Future Ready Schools®(FRS) offers them a step-by-step guide for how to do so.  Due to their remote nature, rural schools face difficulties attracting effective teachers and administrators, transporting students to and from school, and keeping up with fast-evolving technology, including high-speed internet connections, says A Guidebook for Success: Strategies for Implementing Personalized Learning in Rural Schools. At the same time, however, rural schools typically serve as the centers of their communities, drawing in young and old citizens and creating strong personal relationships that stretch across generations.The Future Ready Schools® (FRS) publication, A Guidebook for Success: Strategies for Implementing Personalized Learning in Rural Schools, helps education leaders capitalize on existing assets while addressing their community’s challenges. This guidebook highlights how district leaders can use the research-based FRS framework and free planning resources to leverage opportunities and overcome challenges inherent in their rural setting to transform teaching and create a personalized learning experience for their students.
