• Our department provides online learning opportunities for students in and outside the Houston ISD area. Students are not required to live, be zoned, or attend Houston ISD schools to participate in our program. Because the HISD Virtual School Department is not a stand-alone educational entity but a department within the Houston Independent School District, students who participate in the Virtual School Tuition-Based program are required to receive the appropriate approval from their campuses for the credits earned to be applied to their official transcript at their school.
    For more information for students not currently enrolled, or who are withdrawn temporarily, please contact Maria Bonilla at mbonill3@houstonisd.org or 713-556-7295.
