COVID-19 Emergency resources now available to every school

Over the past three months, Britannica has been working with our partner schools across the world who are grappling with COVID-19 school closures, student absences, and making swift plans to keep their communities safe.

During the month of March, the number of children, youth and adults not attending schools or universities because of COVID-19 grew from 17% to 80% of all enrolled learners around the globe, impacting over 1.3 billion students (UNESCO). 138 countries have enacted nationwide school closures and, in the US, 46 states have decided to close schools (EdWeek).

As schools across the United States implement and prepare for school closures to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in their communities, we want to ensure that you are aware of the free, emergency support and virtual-learning classroom resources Britannica has made available to every school. 

Please sign up here and our team will promptly connect with you to set up your free LaunchPacks access and share remote learning information and resources.

While your school or district reviews preparedness plans, we invite you to take advantage of Britannica LaunchPacks Social Studies and LaunchPacks Science. These free resources are being leveraged by schools across the world who are grappling with shutdowns, conducting virtual lessons, and working to minimize the impact on students, families, and staff.

Our team at Britannica is made up of concerned teachers, educators, and parents. Your school and the wellbeing of your staff and students is our top priority. Please do not hesitate to reach out if there are additional ways we can ease your burden. We are here to offer continued support, relief, and guidance through these uncertain times.
