YOUR REMOTE LEARNING SOLUTION
Special Announcement – COVID-19School May Be Closed, but the Learning Continues
It is an unprecedented time of uncertainty for schools, teachers, and families around the globe. We understand educators are struggling to find solutions for students to continue their school work remotely. Renzulli Learning has always been an option for students to maintain a connection to school when circumstances prevented them from being in the classroom. Now, more than ever, we want our students, teachers, and administrators to know we are here for you through this challenging time.
If COVID-19 has your school closing its doors and going to “distance learning” – Renzulli Learning will get you through it with ease. Communicate with your students while they experience learning in a dynamic, personalized environment on any assignment or project. We are available to help you plan for the time that your school will be closed and provide solutions to support you while engaging your students so the learning can continue, the fear can be diminished, and children can continue to think, dream, plan, and succeed.
