Amir Nathoo, Head of Outschool, recently shared this message with the Outschool community:

“After a fall where we celebrated kids returning to the classroom, schools across the country are suddenly closing again. In what felt like an overnight shift, the Omicron variant brought us back to the uncertainty we saw at the beginning of the pandemic. With this new wave of COVID-19 come new challenges for teaching and learning: there’s simply not enough healthy staff to keep schools open.”

The effect of learning disruptions on kids around the world has come into sharp focus for many parents, teachers, and schools over the past year, and Outschool is dedicated to making sure that learning doesn’t just stop for students as COVID takes its toll again.

Effective immediately, Outschool is launching two new programs to support learners and give educators the opportunity to connect with schools and families in need who may be turning to Outschool for the first time.

  1. Free Classes for Schools: We’re offering unlimited Outschool classes to any school in the U.S. that needs to switch to remote learning or has been closed. Click here to learn more, and please share with any school administrators you know that may wish to sign up. You can also refer a school to this program by filling out this quick form.
  2. Special Discounts for Families: We are offering parents up to $20 off one Outschool class. Parents can choose from any of the 140K+ live online classes available on the Outschool platform by using the code KEEPLEARNING at checkout.* We encourage educators to share this code as they promote their classes this month.

We hope these support programs make it possible for educators to reach more families looking to keep their kids’ passion for learning alive. To read Amir’s full message to the Outschool community, visit this Outschool blog post.
