SAS®, Beneplace help you help kids with homework

SAS® Curriculum Pathways® can also help adults improve skills and marketability

Helping with homework, especially after a long workday, can give even the best-intentioned parent heartburn. But a free resource that makes challenging topics fun is now available broadly, thanks to a collaboration between benefits management firm Beneplace and SAS Curriculum Pathways.

By adding SAS Curriculum Pathways to its library of work/life resources, Beneplace will provide access at no cost to more than 8 million people at large employers worldwide. The offering includes tools, resources and apps in English language arts, mathematics, science, social studies and Spanish. Built for how students learn, they’re proven and popular in traditional, virtual and home schools.

Mapped to state standards, SAS Curriculum Pathways is searchable so parents and kids can easily find a relevant resource. It’s used by nearly 1 million teachers and students in all 50 states and is available at no cost to everyone.

For SAS and Beneplace, the goal is to help employees balance the demands of professional and personal lives. Both organizations understand that supporting a child’s education at home is one of the most pressing priorities. SAS has contracted with Beneplace for 15 years to support its own renowned workplace culture.

“SAS and Beneplace share similar core values, including a strong commitment to our clients and communities,” said Scott McQuiggan, Director of SAS Curriculum Pathways. “We agree nothing should stand in the way of a student’s opportunity to reach their full potential.  Access to valuable educational resources, any time day or night, will help kids achieve their goals.”

SAS Curriculum Pathways is not just for kids, however. Adults interested in honing reading, writing and math skills will find extensive resources that take learners from basic to advanced abilities. For instance, SAS Curriculum Pathways Writing Navigator helps learners understand the purpose of their writing, organize and convey main points, spot missed opportunities, revise their work and produce a polished final draft. Concise, professional business writing can set employees apart from their peers.

Beneplace provides leading employers voluntary benefit solutions that enhance employee loyalty and quality of life. As a no-cost benefit, SAS Curriculum Pathways is an exceptional addition to Beneplace’s portfolio of services.

“We have long admired SAS’ generous commitment to enhancing education,” said Michael Butcher, Senior Vice President of Product Development at Beneplace. “Because we connect so many employees around the world with these free resources, we can help adults hone their skills at the same time we prepare students for today’s workforce.”
