Attention Teachers:

We are now able to provide teachers with a PDF copy of HTMP Textbook & Workbook chapter pages to use with online instruction. The full textbook and workbook should be available online through the VitalSource platform next week. Work continues on an Online Exam solution.  Expected completion is mid-April.   


If you should have any contact with educators, please ask them to reach out to me directly to identify their individual needs and we will assist each as required.
