Webinar Date: July 23, 2015
Time: 1:00 – 2:30 pm EDT
About the Webinar:
In rural settings, recovery and reengagement programs must adapt to remote locations, transportation issues, scarce funding resources, and small populations. Local cultural and value systems must also be considered and addressed if dropouts are to be attracted to and retained by recovery/reengagement program offerings.Participants in this event will leave with an understanding of:
- The range of dropout recovery and reengagement options that are typically used across the nation;
- Unique challenges faced by administrators in rural contexts; and
- What factors will ultimately lead to success.
This webinar will include presentations by administrators of two successful but very different rural recovery and reengagement programs, a multi-county charter program in rural northeast Georgia and a residential program serving numerous rural communities in Wasilla, Alaska.
