• "In order to prepare Houston’s students for a world beyond the four walls of a classroom, HISD has launched PowerUp, a districtwide initiative aimed at transforming teaching and learning. PowerUp is about “powering up” all 282 of our schools to create a personalized learning environment for today’s 21st-century learners and to enable teachers to more effectively facilitate instruction, manage curriculum, collaborate with their peers, and engage today’s digitally wired students. A key component of HISD’s PowerUp initiative is ensuring that our schools, students, and staff have equitable access to technology –including devices, software, and infrastructure—which support 21st century teaching and learning.  With greater access to technology also comes the need for educators and parents to work together to help students understand how the digital world works." - HISD PowerUp


    We hosted our PowerUp Parent Night on August 18 in the Pin Oak library. If you missed it, don't worry – we've got you covered. We recorded the presentation and it's posted right below for you to catch up. Video Update: Since recording, the district has changed the PowerUp policy. The PowerUp fee of $25 has been waived for ALL HISD campuses. Pin Oak students only need to have their paperwork signed.
