COVID-19 – Educational Resources for Students in King, Snohomish, and Pierce Counties

Our hearts reach out to our community as school districts across the area close to slow the spread of COVID-19.  We have helped educate hundreds of students from our local public schools and value our partnerships with the districts, their administrations, and their hardworking teachers.  

Below are lists of online learning resources you can use to help keep your child’s education active.  However, as a private alternative school, we know very well online learning and/or self-directed learning does not work for every student which puts them at risk for learning gaps or even decline.  

Brock’s Academy has always worked one-on-one, one student working with one teacher.  Our instructors can work with your child via Skype.  This means we are still able to provide teacher-lead instruction or tutoring for K-12 students.  If you feel six-weeks of suspended learning will challenge your child, please contact us to discuss educational options.

Sincerely,

Dr. Melodee Loshbaugh, Ed.D., Founder of Brock’s Academy
