School instruction and curricular plans are currently experiencing a disruption unprecedented in our lifetime, but in the Archdiocese of Hartford we are blessed with exceptional Catholic school educators who are rising to this challenge in an outstanding way. The OEEC is proud to support our fine administrators and faculty members with the following resources to facilitate distance learning, help you connect to your school communities, and enrich this new academic approach for all participants. Although the joy of being physically with your students is not possible right now, these resources will enhance your school’s ability to offer the very best virtual learning experience.
