Digital Resources

March 13, 2020

Dear JISD Community

In an effort to continue providing students with instructional continuity during this one-week extension, we have put together a list of resources that your child may access online to support their continued learning.

Your child has access, usernames and passwords to Imagine Learning, which provides a suite of products in reading and math in grades K-8 for reading and K-12 for math. If you or your student has forgotten your JISD login credentials, please send an email to

In addition, here is a list of instructional resources that the JISD Curriculum Department and the Texas Education Agency has shared for this same purpose. Please know that this is not an exhaustive list, but we encourage your students focus their time on visiting educational websites and apps.

Free Educational Resources

Free "Internet Essentials" Packages

Comcast is offering free "Internet Essentials" to low-income customers for 60 days. "Comcast announced Thursday it will be increasing speeds for the Internet Essentials program, and making the program free to new low-income customers for two months, amid the corona-virus outbreak...Those new customers will get complimentary internet essentials service for 60 days, which is normally available to qualified low-income households for $9.95 per month, and the speeds are increasing for new and existing customers." Please share this information with friends or neighbors that may not currently have internet access at home.

English Language Arts & Reading
