Through the Center for Innovative Rural Collaborative and Leadership Education (CIRCLE), rural educational leaders have access to and support for the same exemplary models of leadership that improve teaching and learning in urban and suburban schools – uniquely adapted to meet the context-specific needs (Williams & Grooms, 2016) of rural and remote school and district educational leaders. CIRCLE collaborates with both rural practitioners and researchers, whose shared interest in improving rural leadership makes them significant partners.
The first rural UCEA center, CIRCLE is a practice-research partnership that amplifies rural voices, disrupts deficit rural stereotypes through innovative rural leadership training, and disseminates partnership results through practitioner and scholarly journals and joint presentations at annual meetings. It is a national clearinghouse for practice-research partnerships (PRPs), focused specifically on improving the preparation and practice of educational leaders in rural contexts, thereby improving equitable learning outcomes for rural students across the country.
