COVID-19 Updates

We know you’re concerned about your students, your schools, your communities, and the world.

We are too.

You have lots of questions about what this new normal will look like, about teaching online, about feeding your students, about childcare, and about all sorts of other issues. 

Just like you, our offices are closed and we’re working remotely. But we are ready to help you answer those questions in any way we can. 

We Got This. Together.

Three ways we can help each other:

  • Work with our consultants.
  • Use our constantly updated List of Resources. You’ll find links to all sorts of resources including KSDE’s Continuous Learning plan site and our consultants own resource pages like Literacy Leaders and History Tech.
  • Complete a short survey.  Let us know how we can help and share what’s working for you. We’ll use the responses to better craft our response and use your ideas to help others.

Thank you for all you’re doing to provide the best possible education for your students. Together we got this!


And we want to make getting in touch with us as easy as possible.

Especially now as you’re working to deliver quality learning in challenging times.
So feel free to connect directly with our Team Leaders. They’re ready to help.
