Resource roundup: Supporting career readiness in rural schools

Resource roundup: Career readiness in rural schools

By Joni Wackwitz
September 21, 2018

Rural schools face unique challenges in preparing students for the workforce and college. We rounded up these career readiness resources from the Regional Educational Laboratory (REL) Program and the College and Career Readiness and Success Center with the priorities and needs of rural educators in mind.

REL Midwest supports career readiness efforts in rural districts in Minnesota and across the Midwest through the Midwest Career Readiness Research Alliance and a range of other services.

REL Appalachia’s video, Behind the Findings: Dual Credit Programs in Kentucky, dives deeper into the findings and implications of a study on the implementation of dual credit programs in Kentucky. The video explores possible ways to ensure equitable access to dual credit programs across districts.

The College and Career Readiness and Success Center’s State Work-Based Learning Initiative is supporting states in designing, scaling, and implementing work-based learning efforts through peer networks, including one focused on the unique challenges facing rural communities in implementing work-based learning.
