Huntington ISD launches learning program for students at home

HUNTINGTON, Texas (KTRE) - Huntington Independent School District rolled out their new program for at home learning.

The program includes individualized options for all students with varying needs.

Officials say parents will have to log on the HISD district website, click on the 'Distance Learning" tab and there they find 'Online' and 'Traditional' options for every grade level.

Once there, student’s Pre-K through 3rd grade will be able to access Seesaw and students grades 4th through 12th will be able to access google classroom. Through both programs’ students should be able to interact with teachers regularly.

Huntington Intermediate School principal, Sandy Flowers, says there will be obstacles to overcome but she hopes it will be an easy transition.

“I know that parents aren’t used to be teachers, as well as parents, as well as having their own jobs,” Flowers said. “So, we want to try to lessen the stress and provide individual lessons that the parents do not have to feel like they have to go hunting and searching for what their choosing to teach their children.”

Flowers says assignments will be posted every Wednesday. For students that do not have internet access, HISD offers learning folders which are available for pick up from any campus, 8:00 am through 3:00 pm every Wednesday. To provide further accommodations, a delivery option is available every Wednesday as well, by contacting the school directly to set an appointment date and time.
