The Killeen Independent School Continued Learning Center is scheduled to go live Wednesday with a variety of online platforms and remote teacher support, according to Killeen ISD.

The goal is to blend a combination of platforms to continue elementary and secondary student learning while schools are closed due to the coronavirus.

Hard copy take-home packets will also be available to elementary families without digital accessibility. Packets will be available from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. at students’ individual campuses. Families will return the packets on Monday, March 30 from 8:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m.

According to Killeen ISD, virtual training for teachers is ongoing and parents received an explanation on how to use the online system Monday night. 

Links through the KISD Continued Learning Center website will provide access to grade-level specific content, activities, resources, counseling and technology support.

Similarly, Copperas Cove has been providing in-home instruction to students since March 17, according to communications director Wendy Sledd. The school district has started signing out laptops and iPads for students who need a device at home. 

They also offer a "low-tech" option where students can pick up learning packets at every campus Monday through Friday, from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
