Student Learning Resources
In Magnolia ISD, we are dedicated to providing high-quality learning experiences for our students. During this unprecedented interruption to our school schedule, we want to be sure our students still have opportunities for rich learning experiences that keep them on track in their grade level curriculum even while staying at home.
Below are links to information on how to access our Student Learning Plans. Our outstanding teachers will be your point of contact for support in working through the activities provided. The activities will not be graded, but teachers will be checking in with students and helping as needed. By doing these weekly activities, your child will make progress on essential learning standards that are needed before promoting to the next grade level or course so it is important to do the work and be prepared!
Format - The Student Learning Plans are best completed in a digital format. All district digital resources can be accessed on all mobile devices (Apple or Android smartphones), tablets, iPads, Laptops, Chromebooks or PCs. Magnolia ISD is making available Chromebooks for check-out from each of our schools if a family has a need for a device. Information about Wifi access can be found in the FAQs.
Scheduling - Currently, the activities are scheduled to take no more than 8 hours per week for elementary, 12 hours per week in intermediate and junior high, and 15 hours per week in high school. It is highly recommended that you set aside 2-3 hours each day for learning time based on these guidelines.
STAAR Testing - On March 16, 2020, Governor Abbott waived all STAAR testing requirements for the remainder of the school year.
Chromebook Pick-up and Information
Our campuses and technology department have been working diligently the past couple of days to prepare the check-out of district Chromebooks. Our campuses have all the devices packaged and ready for distribution so we are going to start checking-out devices tomorrow at all campuses. We will continue check-out on Monday as an option for those who are unable to get to a campus tomorrow. Below are the dates and times.
Chromebook Check-out Dates and Times:
- Saturday, March 21 from 10 a.m. - 2 p.m. (all campuses)
- Monday, March 23 from 7 a.m. - 4 p.m. (high school) and 8 a.m. - 4 p.m. (elementary, intermediate and junior high campuses)
- If you have multiple children at one campus, we are distributing one Chromebook per family per campus.
- You will need to drive to the front of each child’s campus and a campus staff member will bring the Chromebook to your car like a drive-through service.
- Parents must be present in order to check-out a Chromebook. Parents will be given a form to sign in order to check out the device and to assume responsibilities associated with having it at home. No one will be allowed to check-out devices on behalf of anyone else.
- If you are unable to pick up a Chromebook during these times, please contact your campus starting on Tuesday, March 24 through Friday, March 27 between 8 a.m. - noon to arrange a pick-up time.
As we mentioned in prior communication, you do not need a district device to access the learning materials on the district website. All of the learning materials can be accessed from home computers, tablets, and smartphones.
Learning independently will naturally come with its challenges — for teachers, students, and parents. We ask in advance for your patience as many of our administrators and teachers learn to implement new remote instructional strategies. While we understand that remote learning differs greatly from traditional classroom instruction, it’s critically important that we continue to engage our students in instruction and learning.
