• SUM19

  • 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    For more information for students not currently enrolled, or who are withdrawn temporarily, please contact Maria Bonilla at mbonill3@houstonisd.org or 713-556-7295.

Coursework and Final Exams

  • Scheduled Assignment Deadlines
    Students are able to work on their course(s) from any computer with Internet connection. Students have access to their course(s) 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Students may work at their own pace; allowing them to focus longer on material when needed, and accelerate on material on which they have a full understanding. However, each student is responsible for completing their coursework on or before the scheduled due date provided within their course.
     
    Final Exam Proctoring  All final exams must be proctored on the student's campus. Students may need to adjust their schedules to complete the course sooner to complete their final exam under the supervision of a campus administrator as required by the program. The counselor, summer coordinator, or principal may also submit written notification to Maria Bonilla (mbonill3@houstonisd.org) that the final exam will be proctored at a later date at the campus*. However the coursework must be completed on or before August 03, 2018.
