HISD launches digital learning centers for students lacking tech

HISD or Houston Independent School District has launched digital learning centers for elementary and middle schoolers via their HISD @ H.O.M.E. Learning program.

The district opened 36 learning centers at select campuses across the district. They are open from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Friday. All students at the center are provided free breakfast and lunch as well.

The Texas Education Agency requires districts that opt to operate remotely to “allow all students to access on campus instruction who come from households without internet access or appropriate remote learning devices.”
