Our Curriculum for Working from Home

Use Our Curriculum at Home or in an Online Classroom

While our standard building-wide site license allows the distribution of our curriculum within a single school building, through June 30, 2020, we are relaxing this agreement:

Teachers and parents are encouraged to utilize the curriculum and materials for our hands-on Project Discovery and Achieve Life Skills titles in any setting, including at home or in an online classroom.

Now, as ever, your health & safety and that of your colleagues, parents and students is our chief concern. If we can ever be of assistance to you, please reach out to us by calling our toll-free number 800-626-2950, sending a message on our website chat, or emailing us at info@educationassociates.com.
