CFO Response: The Rural School Partnership
  • Recognizing the overarching importance of schools to rural development, the Community Foundation of the Ozarks’ board of directors has launched the Rural Schools Partnership, a comprehensive program to strengthen small school districts. The Rural Schools Partnership resulted from a year-long planning process involving CFO’s regional committee, public school leaders, affiliated foundation leadership, donors, and area business people.

  The Rural Schools Partnership embraces three consensus-based strategies for strengthening rural schools:

  • Develop alternative resources
  • Promote collaborations and partnerships
  • Support place-based education strategies….the following grant programs fall under this category. Your school must be an official RSP partner!!!
