Release time, geographic isolation/location, lack of specialty knowledge and expertise, and an opportunity to collaborate with colleagues, is an ongoing struggle for educators, administrators, special service providers and other staff in the educational setting in rural/frontier locations.

The ECHO model offers discussion and coaching opportunities with an interdisciplinary group of highly skilled educators and professionals as a way to build capacity in the application of effective practices supporting classroom, school, district, and student outcomes.

The UW ECHO in Education networks provide ongoing support for professionals working with students in the PreK-12 setting by offering consistent virtual professional development, specific program planning and evidence-based strategies, allowing participants a real-time option to learn about and share best practices.
