HISD released its the 2020-2021 re-opening plan. With the safety of your child in mind, all HISD students will begin the school year virtually with the first day of school starting on Tuesday, September 8th, 2020. Here are some of the highlights of the district’s re-opening plan along with the next steps we are taking to ensure all students will be provided with exceptional instruction while learning from home.
With feedback from community members and staff, HISD has developed an instructional continuity plan for schools. The instructional continuity plan provides schools across the district with standard, detailed guidelines and expectations for virtual instruction. We thank the district for their work on this document and we are committed to reviewing the continuity plan for Horn to ensure it represents the high standard of learning we expect of our students.
Virtual learning will look drastically different than it did in the past with required live teaching, a highly structured daily schedule, interactive activities, and differentiated instruction to meet the needs of all learners. Emphasis will be placed upon alignment to ensure that all students receive an equitable experience.
