ATTN all educators: A message from Education Associates, the makers of Project Discovery and Achieve Life Skills

We are here for you. The impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19) and our response to it have occupied the world's attention for these past few weeks. We recognize the huge impact on schools and communities, and our thoughts are with all who have been affected.

Education Associates, proud creators of Project Discovery and Achieve Life Skills, is dedicated to supporting education in these coming months. We've received a number of questions from educators regarding effects on their students and their programming, so we want to help as you transition to remote learning, whether you have access to online delivery or not.

Here is the link to sign up for Education Associates Achieve Life Skills
Passive Recreation and Basic Hygiene curriculum to use for the remainder of the school year.
