Free Learning Resources for Students

Post

During our district closure, we share our community’s deep concern for student learning. We have collected some of the very best, free online learning options and we hope these will support our students to continue their learning at home.

Our students can also access our district’s Clever Platform to use additional educational resources. This is also a great time for students to do independent reading. 

Contact Us with Questions

Do you have questions regarding learning resources or can’t remember your student login and password for Clever access? We are here for you! Fill out this webform and we will get back to you shortly.
