PRESS RELEASE FROM RENAISSANCE

Renaissance Offers Support for Students, Guardians, and Educators with Free Remote Learning Resources

Posted Apr 09, 2020

Renaissance is providing complimentary math and literacy programs, increased customer support, on-demand webinars, and much more

WISCONSIN RAPIDS, Wis. (Apr. 9, 2020)Renaissance, a global leader in pre-K–12 education technology, today highlighted support efforts for students, guardians, and educators navigating the challenges of remote learning and school closures due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

To ensure continued access to Renaissance programs and familiarize guardians with the programs that their children use in the classroom, Renaissance has created and curated several live and on-demand webinars, implementation guides, and other at-home resources. Resources are being added to the dedicated webpage each week and changing based on feedback from customers.

In addition, Renaissance is working with individual schools and districts to make the most of their current Renaissance programs—and to introduce them to new ones—to support remote learning.

Renaissance is encouraging customers and non-customers to explore Freckle, a free online program that allows students to practice both math and ELA at their own level from home. Educators can also use Freckle to assign practice in math, ELA, social studies, and science to engage an entire class remotely.

“These are unprecedented times for us all,” said Chris Bauleke, CEO of Renaissance. “While the safety of our employees and customers is the top priority, we’re committed to providing meaningful resources to ensure continued learning outside of the classroom.”
