COVID-19: For Educators

Resources to Support Educators & Students at Home
You do so much to support your kids. Let us support you.

COVID-19 has shuttered schools and libraries, leaving many educators in limbo and parents taking a more active role in their child’s learning, often without internet access or books. We know there is a lot of information out there. We’re working to provide you a list of highlights from across the Internet – resources for you as an educator, and resources that can be shared with your students and their families. Please use this page as a source for tips and information that can be used in varying circumstances. 

We will continue to update this list regularly. Please bookmark it and check back often. We’re all in this together.
