GRADING GUIDELINES FAQ

It is with careful consideration and thought that LISD will move forward as planned on the implementation of a pass/fail grading system. We thank our community members who have submitted questions and feedback regarding the changes to grading. 

As you can imagine, this is a topic that generates a wide variety of opinions and thoughts.  In order to provide additional clarification regarding this decision, we have compiled a list of frequently asked questions for your review.

TECHNOLOGY UPDATE 

Does your family still need a technology device? The district is working to ensure all LISD families have at least 1 device per 2 students in a household. Please call 469-713-5964 to schedule a pickup reservation.


Reminders:

NEW STUDENT ENROLLMENT

Are you enrolling a new student in LISD for the 2020-21 school year? We have resumed new enrollment for next year. Since campuses are closed, all enrollment processes will be done virtually, including document collection. This includes new incoming kindergarten and Pre-K students. Learn more on the enrollment webpage

AT-HOME SUPPORT

LISD recently launched At-Home Support to help with questions or needs as you explore at-home learning with your student. You can find self-guided help documents or call, chat or email live representatives who can provide support. Visit LISD.net/athomehelp to get started! 

DIGITAL CITIZENSHIP

As a reminder, the LISD Code of Conduct is still in place and digital citizenship is important during a time where we are communicating primarily with technology. For more information about digital citizenship, see our latest update and find tips for using WebEx Teams as a family here
