In an effort to help schools manage shifts to virtual learning, continuity of instruction, and communication with
stakeholders and communities, the Distance Learning program is making a series of important resources available.
Virtual Learning Resources (https://sites.google.com/neric.org/virtual-learning-resources/)
This resource site contains information about a variety of online
and virtual tools, who they are intended for, and how to access them.
Our recommendation at this time is that you use the tools you already
have or are comfortable using whenever possible.
