This back to school is unlike any other. According to a July survey from TpT, about 12% of teachers are planning for fully remote instruction and 37% are preparing for hybrid instruction. And nearly a third (33%) didn’t yet know their districts’ reopening plans.

TpT is dedicated to helping teachers unlock funds to best support themselves and their students, and we wanted to let you know about a fundraising opportunity from our good friends at DonorsChoose.

On Tuesday, August 11th, starting at 7am ET, all live, approved projects on DonorsChoose will qualify for a 50% boost from The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, while funds last. And now, through our partnership with DonorsChoose, you can add TpT gift cards to your DonorsChoose project to get the teacher-created, teacher-tested resources you need to level up your digital or hybrid lesson planning game.
