Dr. Robert Balfanz of the Everyone Graduates Center at Johns Hopkins University will discuss considerations for early warning system development in rural localities, and several district leaders will highlight effective interventions that are cost sensitive and easily implemented in rural districts. Participants will also have an opportunity to share prevention/intervention best practices with peers.
