HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- This week, HISD will open 36 campuses for elementary and middle school students who don't have access to the technology they need for online learning.

All students at the learning centers will be provided free breakfast and lunch.

According to HISD's website, "Per the Texas Education Agency requirements for districts who are operating under remote learning guidelines, school districts are 'required to allow all students to access on campus instruction who come from households without internet access or appropriate remote learning devices.'"

Students identified as not having access to technology for online learning will be assigned to a DLC and will be contacted by the district via school messenger.

Once a student receives technology from their campus, they are no longer eligible to attend a DLC, according to the district.

Students at the digital learning centers will participate in instruction provided by their teacher on record and complete independent assignments.

Due to the pandemic, the learning centers are only available to students without access to technology. Health screenings will be performed on students upon entry. Students are also required to wear a mask and practice safe social distancing while on the bus.
