HISD Online Parent Courses

To ensure parents and guardians are better informed, HISD has created the Parent Introduction to Virtual Learning online course. This course is designed to introduce virtual learning and provide guidance to support your students through this experience.

Course lessons include:

  • Ways Parents Can Support Virtual Learning
  • Technology Supports for Virtual Learning
  • Supports for Special Populations
  • Academic Policies for Virtual Learning

This course is designed to support the asynchronous instructional model that will allow students to work at their own pace. While teachers will be available to provide live instructional support, this mode of instruction does not require real-time interactions.

The Parent Introduction to Virtual Learning course will be available on Monday, August 10 and can be accessed online here. All parents are asked to complete the course no later than Friday, September 4.
