The Houston Independent School District online course is designed to provide parents with the tools needed to support their child’s transition to the online classroom this fall.
The Parent Introduction to Virtual Learning online course will be available on Monday, Aug. 10 at HoustonISD.org/ParentCourse
Course lessons include:
- Ways Parents Can Support Virtual Learning
- Technology Supports for Virtual Learning
- Supports for Special Populations
- Academic Policies for Virtual Learning
The course is also 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.
A detailed FAQ, timeline, parent guide and other resources related to the reopening plan for the 2020-2021 school year can be found online at HoustonISD.org/Reopening.
