Education

FOR PARENTS: We recommend all parents enroll their kids to RemoteLearning.school's Kids Education Enrichment Program (K.E.E.P) for children ages 5-17, an online supplemental program to Remote, Hybrid, and/or in-person learning, to help prevent them from falling behind on their education. For that purpose, we are making available a $15-off school voucher that can be used to purchase the lifetime membership. Use code "STIMULUS2021" Sign Up Here.

School Vouchers

The Stimulus Bill did not include the private school vouchers. Instead, we are making available to all parents a $15-off school voucher towards RemoteLearning.school's Kids Education Enrichment Program (K.E.E.P) for children ages 5-17.
We recommend all kids be enrolled in the program to give them the skills and educational advantage they deserve. Program is subsidized and endorsed by us.

These payments are funded by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and are retroactive, starting with weeks of unemployment beginning on or after August 1, 2020, and ending on or before December 31, 2020, or when funds run out. Use the LWA Tracker to check on the status of these payments from your state.
