The district has a new Student Information System (SIS) for the 2020-2021 school year. HISD Connect by PowerSchool includes student contact, enrollment, and demographic information, as well as grades and online resources. Parents will be given a unique code, or access ID, for each of their students and will be able to use those codes to set up an account to access their students' profiles through a new parent portal. Parents will receive their student’s access ID from their school by September 14. Parents who haven't received their student's access ID by then should contact their school.
For more than 20 years, fourth- and fifth-graders from two dozen HISD schools have competed in the annual contest, which challenges students to write and present a short original speech on a subject related to the slain civil rights leader. The topic this year is, “What would Dr. King’s vision be for America in 2020?”
