Registration Open


Registration is now open for the 2020 Alberta Rural Education Symposium. "A Clear 20-20 Vision for Rural Alberta Schools & Communities” is the theme of ARES 2020. This year's symposium will focus on global and local trends in education, and address some critical questions facing rural school divisions. What will learning look like in the future? How should student health be a priority in our planning? How can we prepare our students for the rural workforce of the future? How will conceptual understanding position our students for greater success? And, how can we re-imagine rural schools of the future? These are just some of the critical topics our delegates will be discussing under the leadership of several nationally and internationally renowned keynote speakers.

We will continue with our tradition of a Sunday evening panel with the Minister of Education, Adriana LaGrange, along with two other Ministers yet to be named who will be sharing with us their vision for rural Alberta. After the Q&A with the Ministers, participants will have an opportunity to engage in one-on-one conversations with the MLAs during the reception.

We have an exciting and thought provoking program prepared, making this an Alberta Rural Education Symposium you will not want to miss!
