Zoom and Class Participation is Expected and Increases Student Success


Zoom instruction addresses content, mathematical procedures, and even expectations on how to complete assignments. Teachers do put enough on Schoology to help a student complete assignments, but to thrive and engage with the learning, Zoom attendance is critical. Since we are in the second semester, the learning becomes more intricate and the skills are building on one another. Teachers have noticed a huge difference in the achievement of students who attend Zoom class and those that do not.

PSAT for 10th Graders

On Tuesday, Jan. 26, only 10th grade students will be allowed on high school campuses to take advantage of a free College Board assessment, the PSAT/NMSQT, offered to enrolled NISD students this school year.


Registration is required, and only students who indicate on the Participation Form that they will participate in the designated test will be allowed on campus to test on scheduled testing dates.


All students in the designated grade level need to complete a Participation Form to indicate if they will or will not test on campus on their particular date.


Virtual learners in the designated testing grade who submit a Participation Form indicating they will test will need to come on campus since College Board does not offer an option for testing at home.
