Virtual & Face-to-Face Learning
The Houston Independent School District has developed a plan to deliver quality education during the upcoming 2020-2021 school year while ensuring the health and safety of our students, families and staff.
With this in mind, all students will begin the 2020-2021 school year virtually on September 8, 2020.
Virtual instruction for all students will continue for six weeks through Friday, October 16, 2020. On Monday, October 19, 2020, face-to-face instruction for all students will begin. However, this date is subject to change based on COVID-19 conditions across the City of Houston and recommendations from local, state, and federal health officials.
Because it’s important for parents to have the ultimate choice on determining what is best for their child, parents will have the option to opt out of face-to-face instruction entirely for the fall semester and school year.
Parents who choose this option will be asked to complete the 2020-2021 Parent Introduction to Virtual Learning Online Course by September 4, 2020. The course will be available on August 10, 2020.
