The Houston Independent School District will soon launch the HISD @ H.O.M.E. Hotline to provide timely answers to questions from students and parents about fall distance learning.
Starting on Monday, Aug. 3, students and parents can call the HISD @ H.O.M.E. Hotline at 713-556-INFO (4636), Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Operators will be on hand to answer questions in English and Spanish pertaining to HISD @ H.O.M.E.
HISD launched HISD @ H.O.M.E. (Home-based Online Mobile Education), a distance learning plan, in the spring to ensure students’ academic and non-academic needs were met as the district campuses and offices physically closed due to COVID-19 precautions.
Also as part of the district’s distance learning plan, HISD @ H.O.M.E. TV will again provide instructional videos throughout the week. The videos include lessons in English and Spanish from teachers and teacher development specialists in several subject areas, including math, science, reading and writing, social studies, and fine arts. Videos will go live during the first week of school. These videos will broadcast on HISD-TV (Comcast Ch. 18 and AT&T U-verse Ch. 99), as well as online via HoustonISD.org/LiveTV.
Hotline operators will begin taking enrollment questions on Aug. 10 when the district enrollment system launches. Answers to enrollment questions can also be found online at HoustonISD.org/Enroll.
