Electronic Devices

Students are working on projects in language arts and science that require access to a computing device and the internet. We are allowing students to bring their personal device.

Keeping your Child Safe Online


The monthly topic for guidance curriculum in grades K-12 is Internet safety. In order to address this topic, guidance lessons in k-5 will focus on grade appropriate lessons on Internet safety. This will address the skills of decision-making, communication skills, responsible behavior, and interpersonal effectiveness. Please talk with your child about internet safety.


The district will host "Keeping your Child Safe Online" with guest speaker Aisha Saleem, Assistant US Attorney for the Northern District of Texas. This will be held May 12, 2015 at 7p.m. at the Northwest ISD Central Administration Building.
