We are launching the JCISD Home Learning Center (HLC) to help keep your child’s learning moving forward and help structure their day while we are closed. The HLC website includes resources and activities organized by grade level all in one location to assist families preparing for learning at home. There are also links to resources such as Khan Academy, Accelerated Reader, and classroom related programs we've been using. We will also provide some tutorials on items such as Google Classroom, remote connection to teachers,and guidance on how students can reflect on their learning activities.
Our goal is to focus on reinforcing the basic foundations so that when our students do come back to school, they are ready to get back into the routine of learning.
While these resources are online, we also recognize that not all of our families have access to technology or have internet access. Therefore, we will be providing HLC packets that parents can pick up at designated sites, and we are working on gathering Chromebooks in the district to distribute to families in need of a computing device, and we have ordered some hotspots for those in need of internet access.
