Clifton, NJ – March 20, 2020 - For 70 years, ESAs have been guiding and supporting schools through both successful and difficult times. That leadership is especially critical today.

ClassLink has partnered with the Association of Education Services Agencies to provide ClassLink Lite, a subset of our full suite, until August 2020. ClassLink Lite can be activated in less than 90 minutes and includes setup, training, and unlimited support.

For decades, schools have been using ClassLink to deliver online learning. Now, this crisis requires nearly all schools to quickly transition to e-learning models. We created ClassLink Lite because schools have asked for a simple version that can be activated quickly and ready for use immediately.

"During the H1N1 flu outbreak, I received a call from our superintendent asking if we could continue learning if we had to shut down schools. In response, we created e-learning days.  ClassLink helped bridge the gap between educators and students, ensuring an effective continuation of remote learning."

Donna Williamson
Former Director of Technology, Mountain Brook Schools

"In response to recent school closures due to coronavirus, ESAs and districts must make the switch to remote learning models. As educators, parents and students make the transition during this critical time -- access to digital resources is available in seconds with ClassLink Lite"

Joan Wade
Executive Director, AESA
