Content experts at the Georgia Department of Education have developed Remote Learning Plans for teachers and parents. These Georgia Standards of Excellence-based plans were specifically designed for use during these uncertain times as support for school districts, administrators, teachers, and parents who are working tirelessly to provide students with quality content.

The plans are easy-to-use and include both “plugged and unplugged” activities. Check back for more Remote Learning Plans in each content area as they are updated weekly.
