Happy 1st Anniversary!

Happy Anniversary to the CO Rural Ed Collaborative!

Our collaborative is now officially one year old! Last year at this time, we were meeting in Pueblo, bringing educators together to design what this collaborative could look like. We brainstormed, learned together, and got to know each other. We also set the direction of the Collaborative, defined the needs of rural CO districts, and pledged to take our best ideas to the next level through collaborative action! What an exciting year it's been!

Thank you to all of our superintendents, principals, and teachers that have engaged in this work, our BOCES leadership that have been integral connectors for the Collaborative! Special thanks to our partners at CSU-Pueblo, CSU-Global, CO Dept. of Higher Education, CO Dept. of Education, Generation Schools Network, Battelle for Kids, Share Fair Nation, and the CO Rural Alliance for their commitment to advancing opportunity, equity, and prosperity for the students of rural CO!

Check out our members (30 districts strong!) and see what they've been working on this year!

BIG NEWS: Our next convening will be held October 28, 2016 in Pueblo, CO at Share Fair Nation!  SAVE THE DATE! Mark your calendars, more details coming soon! What to expect: a meeting of Collaborative Superintendents, free world-class professional learning for your staff, and a job fair for potential teacher candidates.

Wishing you all a wonderful summer, great weather, and lots of adventure and/or relaxation! We will suspend our regular weekly emails until August, but don’t worry we will be in touch on timely items over the summer months.
