With more than half of U.S. states suspending K-12 education for varying periods of time, millions of parents are looking for resources to help bridge the education gap between coronavirus-related stoppages and the time when schools resume.

With this concern in mind, Grand Valley's Charter Schools Office has created a helpful resource website with prompts for activities and educational work based on grade level, as well as a resource for social-emotional learning.

Resources for supplemental education can be found at https://sites.google.com/view/gvsufamilyresources/home.

"GVSU is supporting teachers, whether they’re professional educators or parents, with resources and lessons throughout the closure period," said Rob Kimball, associate vice president for charter schools. "Classrooms are changing and we’re providing real solutions to keep students engaged in meaningful learning to support foundational skills."
