Take Learning Home With You: TCAPS 24/7

Originally published at tcapsloop.tcaps.net by Danelle Brostrom on December 22, 2015.

TCAPS 24/7 is a great educational gift to share with families via newsletters, emails, and social media. The website was originally created to offer students a learning option on snowdays. Last year, we found anywhere between 250–600 families were logging on with their kids when school was cancelled due to inclement weather. 
 Since then, TCAPS 24/7 has evolved into a more powerful at-home learning platform, accessible for more than just for snowdays. We regularly have around 75 families who are logging on each week all year long to access the site, and even more are using it when we have regularly scheduled vacation days. 
 Families have expressed how much they like this connection to school on our days “off”. Please continue to encourage kids to check out the site. New content is being added regularly. I think students will be excited about the newest updates; we’ve added a whole page of interactive art sites. Special thanks to the art department for helping us get that page off the ground. 
 TCAPS 24/7 can be found at tcaps247.weebly.com. Check it out. And then be sure to share the awesome site with your students and families.
