Call and Learn returns September 15th, to aid students with homework challenges caused by coronavirus. The toll-free hotline provides one-on-one help to Indiana students by linking them with volunteers from the Indiana Retired Teachers Association (IRTA), retirees of AFT Indiana, and ISTA. This program is available to K-12 students by telephone during COVID-19 remote-learning directives.
Students and parents can call 877-40-STUDY (877-407-8839) toll-free to request assistance from a volunteer educator. The Call & Learn Hotline is open from 1:00 p.m. EST – 5 p.m. EST, Tuesday through Thursday. Middle and high school students are matched with educators with expertise in math, science, language arts, and social studies. Elementary students are paired with general education elementary teachers. The program ensures anonymity and also records the calls, protecting both students and educators.
