rootEd Missouri is a statewide initiative designed to improve postsecondary outcomes for students from Missouri’s rural communities. rootEd will support districts' dedicated college and career advisors through a partnership with the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE). Through this partnership, advisors will be placed in up to 60 rural Missouri high schools. These advisors will work alongside school counselors and district leadership to ensure every student graduates with a postsecondary plan and to grow the number of students that enroll in a postsecondary option.  

The Southeast Regional Director will serve as the coach and primary point of contact for all school-based rootEd advisors within a given geography with the goal of increasing the number of students within his/her designated schools that choose education beyond high school. The RD will ensure the success of the school based advisors providing them with initial and ongoing training, supporting them to build a plan that will reach all students, problem-solving around ongoing challenges, and coaching advisors to use data to adjust their plans.
