Mission Statement

Our nonprofit’s mission: to increase equity in K-12 education by making excellent, top-rated curricula openly accessible to districts and schools.


Open Up Resources began as the K-12 OER Collaborative, a 13-state initiative to address quality gaps in the curriculum market.

We partner with leading curriculum writing experts and technologists to provide the best curricula available via traditional print and state-of-the-art digital platforms.

When schools and districts adopt our free curricula, we provide opportunities to reinvest the savings in essential supports, from professional learning to printed materials.
