DeBakey High School is now in Phase 3 of Houston ISD’s PowerUp Initiative. Teachers received their laptops in mid-August, while students will get their laptops in January. In the Fall 2015, teachers will undergo intensive training on HISD’s HUB (learning management system) and various technology tools. Student Laptop distribution begins in January 2016. We will begin informing parents of requirements, insurance deposit, and other pertinent information in grade-level parent/student forums to be held in August/September. Our goal is to have 100% student participation.
