2019-2020 to be Final Year of ExplorNet Curriculum
June 30, 2020 will mark the end of all current QTL/ExplorNet curriculum subscriptions, with no renewals beyond that date. For 35 years of having served schools, teachers and students all over the United States, the QTL/ExplorNet Board of Directors has decided after careful consideration to dissolve the QTL/ExplorNet organization as of December 31, 2019. All curriculum team, trainings and conference activities have ceased as of that date.HOWEVER, current subscriptions will be supported through the end of the 2019-2020 school year! As always, do not hesitate to contact Angela McCallie at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions regarding the curriculum resources and Moodle site. We have truly enjoyed working with our schools and teachers for these many years and hope we have been at least a small part of improving the education process for you and your students. Thank you for your work on behalf of our students.
