Children could be as much as 12 months behind in their development when schools resume. You can help them catch up quicker with the support of a secure classroom.

A virtual secure classroom means students can continue to be educated even when they cannot attending mainstream classes.

But what is a secure classroom and how can it help your school and your students? This blog post explains.
