Learning Guides

The School District of Philadelphia encourages parents and caregivers to find ways to keep their children engaged in educational activities during this extended period of school closures.

The District is making Learning Guides available as a resource during this time. These optional Learning Guides (K-12) are offered for personal use. The Learning Guides are aligned to areas previously taught to students during this school year, and parents and students may select which Learning Guides to use.

Paper copies of English Language Arts and Mathematics Learning Guides are available at all School District grab-and-go meal distribution sites. Electronic copies can be accessed online below.

Students and families with general questions may call the Learning Guide hotline at (215) 400-5300, Monday – Thursday from 9:30 -11:30 a.m.

Thank you for encouraging the use of these guides with your children while the District is closed, and for your ongoing support as valued partners in your child’s education.
