Leaders in rural districts seek ways to connect students to the rest of the world; often using technology as a lever. But rural districts face unique challenges, ranging from slow broadband and outdated infrastructure to limited staff capacity to design and implement new instructional models.
We support rural districts in addressing these challenges and in building dynamic schools systems with student-centered learning models. Being in a rural district does not mean students should be left behind.
Despite facing the unique challenges of being an isolated, rural community, the Fairbanks North Star Borough School District in Alaska committed themselves to bridging the gap for their students. Education Elements worked with the district to win community support, empower teachers, and prepare students for 21st-century technology and careers.
The Wayne-Finger Lakes BOCES is a unique model in which many school districts work with both Education Elements and each other to rethink their instructional models while meeting the varying needs of each district. The districts demonstrated a high level of cross-collaboration, combined with direct support from Education Elements, to revitalize teaching and learning.
When Yuma decided to implement personalized learning, they decided to go big and launched in all 17 schools in their district at the same time. With our support they designed and implemented personalized learning successfully in all their schools, with an eye on continuous improvement and a passion for doing what is best for every student in their district.
Despite outperforming most districts in the state, HCS realized they could do more to raise academic achievement for all students. Education Elements started our work with HCS by developing a personalized learning instructional model and support plan for one pilot middle school; which turned into creating a strategy to roll-out the design and implementation of personalized learning across the district.
In 2014 Uinta County School District #1 knew that they wanted to do more to support student-centered learning but did not know where to start. Since then we have worked with them to support school teams as they design classrooms where the experience is personalized for every student.
