About Us

Rural Wisconsin is more than our state’s heritage; it’s home to almost 44% of the state’s 860,000 public school students. Rural schools share the same responsibility to the community as their suburban counterparts–to prepare all students for a successful future in a globally competitive marketplace.

The Wisconsin Rural Schools Alliance (WiRSA) was formed to help rural school districts address the unique issues that affect rural schools as they seek to achieve the highest quality education for every student. Our members include a cross- section of educators, school board members, rural community members, business leaders and other concerned individuals who want a strong voice for rural schools.
