HISD launches new K-12 teaching and learning platform: the PowerUp:HUB

2014 August 21

As HISD continues its efforts to digitally transform teaching and learning, the district will be transitioning to a new online platform called the PowerUp:HUB, or “HUB” for short. A select group of K–12 campuses will be taking part in a HUB pilot program this school year. However,all teachers can access the district’s curriculum through the HUB at

To make things more efficient, access to the HUB is single sign-on, meaning once teachers sign on to their computer with their HISD user I.D. and password, they will not need to re-enter it to access the HUB. Teachers should plan to use the HUB as their primarysource for curricula in core courses. If they encounter any difficulties, core curricula will be loaded into for the 2014–2015 school year as a backup measure.

In addition to HISD curriculum documents, teachers can also directly access a variety of district applications through the HUB, such as A4E, Gradespeed, EdPlan, and Easy IEP, as well as nearly two dozen third-party applications and outside digital resources including Istation, Khan Academy, ABC Clio, and many more. For a complete list, click here (.pdf). The district will be adding more apps, resources, and tools throughout the year in an effort to make the HUB a “one stop shop” for all HISD teachers.
