TN School Board Education Outreach

Many of you have inquired about ideas and resources related to providing educational opportunities to students who are currently not in school due to Covid-19.  I know some of you such as WMC and in Memphis and several of our public stations have already launched your own initiatives to address this concern. 

Please see the attached information from the Tennessee School Board Association regarding tndigital, an education outreach initiative which helps supply teachers, students, parents, and administrators with easy access to their learning materials, which includes everything from lesson plans to worksheets, and from educational videos to assessments. 

The TSBA would appreciate helping get the word out to Tennessee communities about this important resource.  Please share with your news and public service departments as you deem appropriate. 

Thanks,

Chris
