Free Distance Learning During COVID-19

May 04, 2020 | Dan LaFountain |

Speak Agent is now available FREE (with no purchase obligation) for use during school closings for a limited number of districts (as many as we can serve on a first-come, first-serve basis). Our goal is to give your teachers resources to engage their students with online math or science content while at home during school closure. This is why we are offering select school districts the opportunity to take advantage of our new Home Access Program.

Teachers can manage class assignments and see the work their students are doing through our digital portfolio tool. Our team is on call to help you get started at no cost. You will also have access to live and recorded PD webinars that provide research-based instructional strategies.

When Can I Start?

Now! To get started, a supervisor/director in your district's Curriculum & Instruction department should schedule a 15-minute call with us. We will then get your account set up and ready to go within 48 hours!

What Happens When School Re-Opens?

We will honor the free access program for use both in-school and at-home through July 31, 2020. You will remain eligible for our low-cost New Customer Program next fall. Our sole focus is making sure that your students and teachers have a great digital learning experience with Speak Agent!
