The central theme for the 2018 National Congress on Rural Education in Canada is “Innovations in Rural Education.” School divisions of all sizes, demographics, and locations are pushing the boundaries of innovation and 21st century learning. To respond to the rapidly changing demographics of our student population, innovative strategies to improve outcomes for students and learning communities are needed. Delegates are invited to engage in open conversations, have opportunities to collaborate in meaningful discussions, and make connections at provincial and national levels.

The focus of the presentations should include supporting innovative leadership, student engagement, responding to the Truth and Reconciliation calls to action, the role of school community councils, developments in IT, education sector strategic plan, and building a culture of safety.

Submission deadline for presentations is January 15, 2018.
