The videos go over registration and welcome procedures, the importance of parental involvement and, finally, how a typical day at any HISD campus might be.
Multilingual Senior Manager, Terrie Armstrong, explained the importance of providing students and parents with these resources, especially if they are in their home language. videos are available in English, Spanish, Arabic, and Swahili.
“At HISD we celebrate our diverse student body therefore, our goal is to foster a welcoming academic atmosphere so that all students achieve their highest potential,” said Armstrong. “The goal is to walk students through some guidelines so that they start the school year on the right foot and invite parents to continually participate in their child’s academic success,” she added.
