HACC Parent Communication: COVID R2L Plan

HACC communicated its R2L plan to schools and parents via School messenger and social media. https://www.smore.com/907b4


  • We will be working with schools to provide student's that opt for online learning the ability to take online CTE type classes through their online platforms (Edgenuity, Edmentum)
  • Both platforms offer classes that will enable students to meet pre-requisite requirements to enter year 2 of our CTE programs. *Health Science: If a year one student who is not attending HACC takes Anatomy/Physiology and Health Science 1 and receives a B or better and who has already taken Biology, they would be eligible to enter the year 2 program @ HACC during the 21-22 school year.
  • HACC cannot offer these online versions because they are not recognized by the state as CTE programs.

Registration Improvements

Brenda is working with JCISD to automate our registration process.

  • We are first working with schools that use Powerschool.
  • JHS and RHS use Skyward
  • Brenda will use this process to import data from LEA's PS into HACC's PS. No more hand entering.
