THE FUTURE STARTS TODAY

COVID-19 RESPONSE

RELIEF FUND

The Houston ISD Foundation has established a fund to help HISD more quickly and effectively respond to crisis events. Today, this crisis is COVID-19. Priortiy areas for the COVID response are:

HISD @ H.O.M.E.

Ensuring every student has access to a working device that can reliably connect to the internet and every teacher has the hardware, software, connectivity and training to propel student growth remotely.

WRAPAROUND SERVICES

We must continue to provide for students’ basic needs, but also work to support their mental health during this crisis. Situations like this can be traumatizing for children, and we will need to increase these services during and after the crisis.

INNOVATIVELY RESPONDING

We are faced with tremendous needs: serving students with disabilities and English language learners remotely, the possibility that drop-out rates could rise dramatically and the reality that the situation at hand could widen the achievement gap.

INNOVATION FUND

Encouraging teachers to think more creatively about how to respond to the current crisis.
