TUCSON, AZ — April 1, 2015 — Learning A-Z, an online provider of PreK-6 education solutions and part of Cambium Learning Group, Inc., announced today that its products are now available to purchase through AdoptAClassroom.org.
Donor-adopted teachers can now use their contributions to purchase Learning A-Z products through the AdoptAClassrom.org online marketplace. This move reaffirms Learning A-Z's commitment to helping educators identify and secure funding opportunities to procure the products and resources they need to support every student, at every learning level.
AdoptAClassroom.org is a national nonprofit organization dedicated to connecting donors with teachers. Teachers use the AdoptAClassroom.org platform to raise awareness of their classroom needs. Donors find and fund classrooms by searching for a specific teacher, school, or a subject in which they are passionate. Teachers use their funds to shop on AdoptAClassroom.org and purchase the resources and supplies they need to help their students learn and succeed. Donors receive email updates from their adopted teachers informing them on how their contributions were used and how the students benefited.
"Since we first started offering PreK-6 resources online, Learning A-Z has been sensitive to the fact that many teachers do not have budgetary means to get all the resources they need," said John Jorgenson, senior vice president of marketing at Learning A-Z. "As a company, we strive to direct teachers to funding opportunities available through Learning A-Z as well as external sources. AdoptAClassroom.org is a noble organization, and we couldn't be more pleased to work with them to get developmentally appropriate resources in the hands of teachers and students."
"We are thrilled to have Learning A-Z join our efforts in supporting teachers and student success," says Bob Thacker, executive director of AdoptAClassroom.org. "It is through the support of vendor partners such as Learning A-Z that enables us to continue our mission and our commitment that 100 percent of individual donations on AdoptAClassroom.org go directly to our registered teachers."
