HIGH SCHOOL LEARNING

NISD will offer our high school students three models of learning during the 2020-2021 school year:

  • Traditional In-Person Learning
  • Remote Courses taught by NISD teachers
  • Edgenuity Courses in which students will be supported by NISD teachers

There will be a small number of “unique courses” in which a handful of students might need to Zoom in for instruction during the day.  We will provide a list of courses that we will not be able to serve remotely or through Edgenuity–meaning students will need to choose In-Person if they want to take those courses.

In-Person Learning

  • Students should not arrive at school any earlier than 8:20 am.
  • Students will be expected to use district-approved hand sanitizer immediately upon entering the building.
  • Students arriving at school early will be expected to social distance and follow campus protocols for arrival until school begins.

Remote Learning Format

Students will participate in daily learning activities using Moodle, an online learning platform. Once in Moodle, students will have access to Zoom links, Edgenuity courses, daily assignments, and more.  Instruction and support will be provided by NISD teachers in a blend of synchronous (live, in real time) and asynchronous format. This means that students will have both scheduled and flexible learning times daily. Remote learning schedules are now available.

Attendance requirements will apply to all students.
