Fort Bend ISD launched At-Home Learning, a tool for students and parents to access educational resources and experiences, on March 19.
Through the website, students and parents can find links to online resources as well as ideas for activities around the house that continue to promote learning.
“We are launching FBISD At-Home Learning, a web page filled with free educational resources and ideas designed to help you help your children engage in learning on a consistent basis,” Superintendent Charles Dupre said in a March 18 video message to students and families. “Using these tools, you will be able to begin to create more structure in your child’s day, as we prepare for teacher-led instruction.”
Dupre said the district compiled these resources in response to families needing support on how to keep students engaged and have a structured schedule while at home.
Dupre emphasized that At-Home Learning is not the same as online learning through the district. He said FBISD staff is still working on the district’s teacher-facilitated online learning program to ensure it is well-thought-out, well-developed and equitable.
“We understand our students, and their parents, might be missing the structure of the school day,” Dupre said. “So, in the near term, we will do our part to help you have productive days at home. And, in the long term, we will provide the systems to keep our students learning at home for as long as they can’t assemble at school.”
FBISD has suspended student instruction and normal operations through April 10 in an effort to prevent the spread of the coronavirus. Check FBISD's website for the latest information.
