NW RISE Annual Convening

March 17 (8–4:30 pm) and March 18, 2022 (8–3:30 pm) | The Coeur d’Alene Golf & Spa Resort 


Region 16 Comprehensive Center (R16CC) and Region 17 Comprehensive Center (R17CC) are partnering this spring to support rural educators across Alaska, Idaho, Montana, and Washington at the NW Rise Annual Convening. The convening is centered around thriving. The convening is designed to help rural educators find a pathway from barely surviving to thriving — and to help their students to do the same.

The Northwest Rural Innovation and Student Engagement (NW RISE) Network brings together teachers and leaders from the region’s most isolated and remote communities. NW RISE addresses the lack of connection and professional development opportunities rural educators often face by convening rural teachers, principals, and superintendents who share common problems of practice and a desire to improve outcomes for students.

Staff members from participating school districts and state education agencies can join the NW RISE Network, which is supported by R17CC and state and local education agencies in the Northwest. Participants meet face to face twice a year in job-alike groups and collaborate virtually throughout the year.
