Early childhood education puts great emphasis on setting up children for success in their academic journey. HISD parents have the option of helping their little scholar get a head start with HIPPY, an evidence-based, at-home learning program for children ages two through kindergarten.
HIPPY (Home Instruction for Parents of Preschool Youngsters) is a free program for future HISD students, designed to train parents to teach their toddlers the educational cornerstones that they need thrive once they grow into a traditional classroom.
The district’s Parent Portal, HISD Connect, is going offline for end-of-year maintenance on July 21, 2023.
This will impact online enrollment, as the Enrollment Portal will be offline from Friday, July 21, through Tuesday, Aug. 1. During that time, parents and caregivers are asked to report to their child’s campus to complete a manual enrollment application.
In a sprawling city like Houston, it is important for busy parents to be able to consolidate the many necessary steps to enrolling their children in school. In hopes of making a once headache-inducing chore into something fun and easy, HISD’s Office of Student Enrollment partnered with the St. Austin Center to host Día de los Niños, an enrollment event, carnival, and one-stop shop for community resources all rolled into one.
