VIRTUAL INSTRUCTION TECHNOLOGY SUPPORTS
While this school year’s opening is different than any that have come before, our staff has the same level of commitment and excitement to meet, teach and support all students. HCPSS teachers have been busy preparing online learning materials for their classes and are dedicated to creating a caring and supportive online classroom.
We recognize there may be times the applications HCPSS is using for virtual learning may not work as anticipated.
