About

The Washington Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction Open Educational Resources (OER) Project raises OER awareness and provides support for school districts adapting, developing, and implementing openly-licensed instructional materials.

Our Washington OER Hub is an online library of free, high-quality, K-12 OER created by and curated for Washington educators. All these materials are aligned with Washington State learning standards and may be downloaded, adapted, and shared to better serve all students.
