    To address pandemic circumstances during this school year, the Bee has developed a new online testing platform to help teachers administer their school spelling bee programs, whether students are learning in the classroom or remotely from their homes.


    Teachers will have the option to use this online testing platform to conduct classroom- or grade-level spelling bees, and each school coordinator can also use the platform for the school-level spelling bee. The online testing platform will be available to enrolled schools in October.
