“When children aren’t in school for extended periods of time, they’re at risk of losing academic gains,” says Brock Falkenberg, Lake County Superintendent of Schools.
“We are proud to announce that The Lake County Office of Education has partnered with Age of Learning to provide free home access to ABCmouse, Adventure Academy, and ReadingIQ to all Lake County families because of the school dismissals due to the coronavirus outbreak.”
Lake County families can access to these home education resources by going to lakecoe.org/COVID-19 and clicking on “Educational Resources.”
“Interruptions in learning due to unanticipated events such as school closures can have adverse impacts on children’s academic growth and development, as well as on their need for stability and consistency,” explains Falkenberg.
“When in-school learning isn’t possible, using research-based digital education programs at home can help children stay engaged, provide them with valuable learning experiences, and allow them to maintain some continuity in their lives.”
Age of Learning is providing free home access to Lake County families to ABCmouse, Adventure Academy, and ReadingIQ.
