Request for Proposals now open through March 8

The Rural Schools Association is excited to announce that we have started planning our annual conference, which will be held at the Lake Placid Convention Center from July 14-16, 2024. As a nod to the Miracle on Ice from the 1980 Winter Olympics, the planning committee has selected “The Miracle of Rural Education” as this year’s theme.

We are seeking applications from school districts and/or BOCES districts that have any unique and successful programs currently in operation that focus on helping make our rural schools more effective and efficient. The program you propose can be related to our theme or be of general interest to conference attendees. For instance, you may have a program that highlights unique opportunities you provide for your students, including but not limited to: career and technical education, workforce development or apprenticeship opportunities. Additional topics may include: advocacy, district culture, operational success, technology initiatives, community connections. 

Presentation proposals should be limited to 500 words or less and you must submit electronically by midnight March 8, 2024 by visiting https://rsany.org/2024-proposal. Feel free to share this link with others who you feel may be interested in participating.
