Joint Letter of Support

Dear NTCA and NREA Members:

Parents across the country are starting to receive information from schools about fall reopening plans, and more jurisdictions will follow in the coming days and weeks. In every case, we are asking administrators, teachers, and parents to choose from unprecedented options and based upon imperfect information. But, even with all of the lingering uncertainty, one thing is clear – regardless of how they handle in-person instruction, every school needs to be ready for the prospect of remote learning this fall as well. Please read the entire joint letter of support.


Welcome to NREA

The voice of all rural schools and communities

The National Rural Education Association (NREA) is the voice of all rural schools and rural communities across the United States. In an increasingly confusing system, we help rural educators navigate through the noise by finding and helping you use the resources needed to educate today’s students. Whether that’s a rundown on current legislation and how it affects rural communities or guidance on how to meet specific educational needs within your community, our national organization can help. We also help in the publication of your research because we believe in the value of shared knowledge. We are your advocates—your voice—in education.
