The purpose of the Rural Alliance is to strategically enhance the work of ASBA and its member boards in cultivating excellence in locally governed rural and remote school districts, with a focus on: Networking opportunities to encourage positive, effective relationships and collaborative efforts among leaders of rural and remote school districts. Collective and strategic advocacy and member education to improve opportunities and outcomes for students in rural Arizona. Ensuring representation by rural and remote leaders within the governance of the ASBA.

Did you know more than half of all Arizona school districts are in rural or remote areas of the state?
