This year your child has the opportunity to access a variety of online learning tools provided to them by the district.

From the internet, go to portal.nisdtx.org. It will bring up a page with the same information as shown below. Students may input their district provided username and password. Please see the picture below for guidance.

Accessing Google from Home

In an effort to ensure our students are future ready, your child has their own Google for Education account. This is a district managed account to enable your child to participate in integrated, collaborative learning experiences with other NISD students and teachers. We encourage you to have your child access their google account at home and share with you the variety of projects and activities they have been working on in their classes. Students in grades three through five have created a digital e-portfolio for the purpose of organizing, sharing, and showcasing their learning. To access Google for Education accounts at home, please use the links provided below for the login credentials and additional information.
