We started an ongoing conversation between Idaho educational leaders, stakeholders, researchers, and graduate students during the summer of 2020 by hosting a BE WELL (Broncos Engaging with Working Educators Leading and Learning) series with a variety of guests and topics. The goal of the series was to bring system level leaders together from across Idaho’s landscape to solve challenging problems in education.

Faculty and students in Executive Educational Leadership have a subscribers network that allows school districts, charters, and other agencies to work with our researchers, faculty, and graduate students to deliver professional development, coaching, mentoring, research regarding systems challenges, and other services like program evaluation.

One of our specific goals is to build capacity and support rural education in Idaho. The Network engages in practice-research partnerships to identify challenges and collaborate on finding solutions. Rural leaders (superintendents, principals, and teacher-leaders) often wear many hats and are spread very thin. We work to find ways to support these educational leaders from the system level to the classroom by improving support strategies, services, and collaboration on the quality and viability of rural teacher, principal and superintendent pipelines (including recruitment, preparation, development, and retention).
