Attendance During Virtual Learning
Students who engage in learning activities via the HUB, participate in a Teams meeting with teachers, and submit assignments via the HUB are considered “present” and will not be marked absent. State law TEC §25.092 and Houston ISD Policy still require students to attend at least 90% of their classes to earn credit for the course. Remote attendance will count in the same manner as on-campus (face-to-face) attendance in satisfying this requirement.
Students can engage with their teacher though the following:
- Daily participation in the HUB, the HISD Learning Management System (LMS), completion of flipped assignments before class, independent reading and work assignments, use of assigned digital tools, and/or group interactions.
- Interaction with teacher via Teams as part of daily guided practice and small group instruction.
- Students submit assignments via the HUB for each scheduled class. When unable to submit via the HUB students can submit assignments via emails, photos, phone conferences or other forms of documentation.
Parents and students will receive absence notifications via School Messenger after 6:00 p.m each day. This absence notification is for Average Daily Attendance purposes and does not resolved individual absences from classes. High School students are required to be in attendance for synchronous, live classes on Teams for every period. Students who have extraordinary situations should work with their Assistant Principal to determine whether a modified learning plan is necessary.
