April 6, 2020

Amidst the uncertainty and changing times, we’re looking at each day as an opportunity to be here for your students and your school. We are making our tools and resources more available and we are listening.

However, if you’re like us, your already crowded inbox is becoming even more crowded with emails. To reduce emails, we’ve started a monthly update email newsletter. We’re going to do our best to limit our emails to monthly and use social media for additional updates.

Take a look below at what’s coming up for items that can be used to help further the goals for your students. And, if you don’t already, follow us on Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter to stay up-to-date on Inceptia.

We’re here for you. Let us know how we can help!
