Parent Virtual Learning Course

Students will begin the school year virtually on Tuesday, September 8. I understand that the transition to virtual learning can present various challenges for families.

To ensure parents and guardians are better informed, HISD has created the Parent Introduction to Virtual Learning online course and can be accessed here. 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.

All parents are asked to complete the course no later than Friday, September 4th.
