As home becomes a growing place for school, the school-to-home connection has never been more essential. Educators have been asked to radically change their practice (and quickly), while families have been challenged with a radically new student experience. WideOpenSchool.org helps families and educators find and use trusted resources to enrich and support distance learning through an easy-to-use distance learning hub for families and educators in preschool – grade 12. With Daily Schedules of curated learning activities for students by grade level, Learning Resource Libraries curated by subject, and supplemental activities to support life skills, SEL, physical activity, arts, STEAM, and much more, there is something for everyone! We invite you to come learn about Wide Open School, a new, free online portal of resources to support families and educators supporting remote learning in their school communities.
