About the Equity Institute

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic and our region’s efforts to prevent its spread, we have made the difficult decision to postpone the 2020 Equity Institute, Count Us In: Advancing Equity in Rural Schools and Communities, until Spring 2021.

We wish we could be together in community this Fall to discuss the ever-more serious inequities burdening rural communities, but we recognize that managing health concerns, changed family and school dynamics, uncertain school start dates, budget constraints and educators’ and families’ efforts to resume normalcy will be of the utmost priority.

Institute partners will continue working diligently to support rural educators and families until we can meet again. This will include a series of webinars that offer practical, timely information and resources for educators, providers, families, agency staff and other stakeholders.
