Homeschooling: A Resource for Parents and Teachers

Purpose

Due to the spread of Covid-19, the state of Massachusetts is recommending that all schools, public and private, be closed through the end of the school year.

The members of the Lesley University community are teachers, therapists, students, parents, employees  - all in some part affected by the school closures.

This guide is not created with any official state guidelines in mind, however, it was created to have a place for resources that might be helpful to have gathered in one place, and organized by subject.

Please refer to the university's policy concerning Covid-19 here.
