New Resources

Personalized Learning in Rural Schools

The 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 overcome challenges inherent in their rural setting to transform teaching and create a personalized learning experience for their students.

Planning for ESSA Made Easier

Steps three and four of the Five Step Planning Process have been totally redesigned. Our new simple, flexible and intuitive interface helps district teams develop well written, research-based plans that are full of practitioner-suggested strategies. ESSA or not, the redesigned Action Planning tool provides districts with a “sandbox” to collaborate as a team, set goals, and effectively strategize a successful digital transition. CHECK IT OUT
