Fifth six weeks selection period for in-person or virtual instruction begins March 1

With the fifth six weeks of the 2020-2021 school year approaching, HISD families have the option starting Monday to revise their selection for either in-person or virtual instruction for students. The first day of the fifth six weeks is March 22.

The selection process remains the same. Parents will have from Monday, March 1, through Friday, March 5, to make their selection through the HISD Connect Parent Portal “Forms” section. If parents would like to keep their selection as-is, no action is needed. The current selected mode of instruction will carry over to the fifth six-weeks grading period.

If a change is needed, parents will be able to log in to the HISD Connect Parent Portal and make their new selection. Parents also can contact their child’s school to change their selection. Please utilize our helpful step-by-step videos on completing forms or getting started in the Parent Portal

This process is continuing to ensure campuses can begin planning for physical space, staffing, and scheduling. Once a selection is made, the choice is valid for the remainder school year. There will be additional opportunities to change a selection throughout the year, if desired.
