We’ve partnered with Class Catalyst to offer a complimentary version of their online SEL platform to focus on supporting parents and teachers for the next 60 days.

Class Catalyst Cares is a web based platform for students to check-in with their emotions and connect with a caring adult. For parents, this provides the ability to check-in with their children while they are at work. For teachers, this provides a window to connect daily with those students whom they know may be silently suffering during this time, anxious about remote learning, or needing to stay connected to a trustworthy adult.

Class Catalyst Cares will be available starting 3/25. Fill out the early sign-up form so we can keep you updated.
