PowerUp

Laptops are Coming January 30 -31

Bellaire High School will participate in the pilot program for the districtwide initiative called PowerUp. This initiative will transform how teachers teach and how students learn at HISD schools. PowerUp will empower HISD students to become drivers of their own learning and will connect them with resources, people, ideas, and opportunities far beyond the four walls of the classroom. For HISD teachers, the initiative will allow them to create more effective, engaging instruction that can be tailored to the needs and interests of students.

Things you need to know to receive a student laptop.
