Tools and resources for teaching and learning remotely
About Remote Learning
In response to school closures due to COVID-19, ESD 112 remains committed to supporting our school district staff and families. We will continue to provide information on valuable professional learning opportunities and share vetted educational resources. We are in the process of transitioning our professional learning classes to a virtual format wherever possible and have provided tools for teaching and learning remotely.
If you would like to add a resource to share with others, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
