Third Quarter Learning Location Changes Require Class Leveling

changes from remote learning to in-person learning require campuses to balance student numbers by leveling classes

learning location changes (students moving from remote learning to in-person learning or vice versa) require schools to balance student numbers by leveling classes

Northwest ISD campuses are processing about 869 requests this week for learning location changes, which includes adjusting some teacher and class assignments (known as class leveling). The largest impact will be at the elementary level.

District officials are working hard to minimize the number of students who will be impacted by a teacher change. With students returning to In-Person Learning or moving to Remote from In-Person Learning, we have teachers assigned to Remote Learning that will need to come back into the classroom. Our goal is to “level” classes as much as possible, and in order to do that, some In-Person students may have to move to a different classroom and some Remote students to a different teacher.

Realizing that this year would require more class leveling than normal is one reason NISD implemented the same daily schedule for all Remote elementary students. District leaders hope that the consistent schedule — along with teachers staying on the same pace and using the same curriculum — will make changes and transitions to a new class more bearable for students affected by class leveling.

If your child will have a change in teacher beginning with the next grading period on Jan. 6, you can expect the following communication next week:

  • An administrator from your home campus will contact you by the end of the day on Wednesday, Dec. 16.
  • Your child’s new teacher will contact you by the end of the day on Friday, Dec. 18.
  • Your student will begin in their new class on Wednesday, Jan. 6.

Northwest ISD central office leaders, curriculum team, principals and teachers have worked diligently to develop a learning plan designed to meet the needs of all of our students, whether they are learning remotely or in-person.
