Gwynedd councillor Gareth Thomas met with Assembly Members Llyr Gruffydd, Sian Gwenllian and Simon Thomas in the National Assembly in Cardiff Bay.
The Plaid Cymru councillor for Penrhyndeudraeth, and cabinet member responsible for education met with the Assembly Members to discuss rural schools.
Last month the Welsh Government announced a new £2.5m per year rural and small schools grant to support schools working together.
This includes encouraging greater use of technology to combat the issue of professional isolation, providing administrative support in schools where the head teacher has significant teaching commitments and increasing the community use of school buildings. This grant will be made available from April 2017.
