Resources

As our community continues to navigate school closures and moves to online learning platforms, CATDC is working daily to provide resources to California independent schools and continue to build connections between them. Thankfully, there is an abundance of online learning resources available and also new ones emerging specific to the crisis created by COVID-19: we have compiled some of our favorites here.

Please do not hesitate to reach out to the CATDC team if you need extra support. We are actively thinking of creative ways to continue learning together and would appreciate your input.
