Curriculum Resources & Materials

Dear Billerica Community,

Billerica Public Schools is providing educational resources and materials for students to continue their learning at home during the unexpected school closure. This is an unprecedented time for all but we understand the importance of helping children access opportunities for learning even though they are not at school.

Our BPS Remote Learning Plan describes the educational programming for students that is facilitated by the educators in the district. In addition to the educational activities and class assignments teachers provide through the Remote Learning Plan, we have these optional educational resources available for families to use as a supplement to work assigned by teachers. The intent is for the resources to be accessible, user-friendly, and engaging for students and parents/guardians, providing opportunities for students to deepen learning and strengthening competencies.

In addition to the resources on this site, DESE provides resources for families and caregivers. Families can access that link here:

Please feel free to reach out to me if you have questions or difficulty accessing the materials.

Jill Geiser, Ed.D.

Assistant Superintendent
