Arlington ISD Launches The At-Home Learning Hub
To help students’ minds stay actively engaged during the district’s closure due to COVID-19, the Arlington ISD is launching an At-Home Learning Hub for all prekindergarten through 12th-grade students.
Beginning Tuesday, March 17, students will have materials and resources available online that are age, grade-level, and content-area appropriate. These resources are meant to reinforce learning that has already taken place in the classroom in core subjects – English/language arts/reading, math, science and social studies. Additionally, given the district’s continued focus on literacy, a variety of e-book platforms will be available for students.
“Our academic services and technology divisions have been working around the clock to come up with a plan to ensure Arlington ISD students have the opportunity to continue to learn even while school is closed,” Arlington ISD Superintendent Dr. Marcelo Cavazos said. “This is a vast undertaking, and we’ve seen an all-in effort from our entire district to help our students. I am proud of our Arlington ISD staff and know our students will benefit greatly from their work.”
Meeting The Needs Of Students
Through the At-Home Learning Hub, parents will be able to access these resources, which will be continuously updated. The district is planning for both immediate needs through the district’s closure until Friday, March 27, and also extended needs in the event that the district will need to close beyond March 27.
Comprehensive information on the Arlington ISD response to COVID-19 is available on the Coronavirus website.
