2020 has become the year of questions, especially when it comes to our children’s schooling.

Right now there are A LOT of options for students and parents when it comes to the 2020 – 2021 school year.

Will your student be attending school at home? Will they be going to class part-time? Will they be taking all of their courses online? No two households will be approaching the school year in the same way.

At Springfield’s Talk 104.1 we know how important structure and routine can be when it comes to a child’s education. This is why we want to make finding options for your child’s schooling even easier with the Back To School Resource Page.

This page has been designed to simplify the process of finding educational resources here in the 417! Use the list below (once we have educators’ information to provide) to find local educational programs, tutors, and child-care providers that are a good fit for your family.

Are you an educator? Thank you so much for everything you do in teaching and guiding our youth!

If you’re a qualified and licensed educator, tutor, or child-care provider that is interested in posting your information on our page, please fill out our form/ questionnaire when you CLICK HERE!
