Katy Virtual Academy
Parents may enroll their child into KVA for the fall 2020 semester by logging into PowerSchool. The KVA enrollment option is available beginning on Monday, July 20 through Friday, August 7th, 2020. (Note that the deadline to enroll has been extended from the original deadline of August 5th.)
Students who elect to begin the school year enrolled in KVA may elect to return to in-person instruction at the end of a six-weeks (secondary) and nine-week (elementary) grading period. KVA enrolled students are not allowed to return to in-person instruction prior to the close of a grading period.
It is recommended that KVA enrolled students have a dedicated technology device with audio and camera capabilities. Broadband internet access is required as well. Please indicate on the KVA commitment form via PowerSchool if your child is in need of a device and/or internet access.
Note: Parents who plan for their children to return to campus for in-person instruction do not have to submit a commitment form.

Annual Enrollment Update Happening Now
During this week, parents and guardians who have an email address on file with the District will have received a unique SnapCode for each of their enrolled students. Please be sure to check the spam folder, as the district sends the codes out in large batches and many e-mail programs tag the message a spam. They will be sending batches daily, so it may take until Friday to receive yours. Parents and guardians who have not provided an email address will receive their Snapcode by US postal mail.
If you do not receive a SnapCode by the designated date, or you are having issues with PowerSchool Enrollment, please contact your child’s campus or submit a Help Desk ticket and a Technology staff member will contact you within 24 business hours.
When completing the Annual Student Update via Power School, parents will have the option to request a technology device and/or internet support for their children due to in-person instruction being delayed until Tuesday, September 8. Parents who selected the Katy Virtual Academy (KVA) instructional option may request a technology device and/or internet support if the request was not made when the KVA commitment form was submitted.
The deadline to complete the Annual Student Update is August 18.
If you have any questions about your student's enrollment at WoodCreek Junior High, please contact our registrar at LeahCCaffey@katyisd.org.
Please see below for information about volleyball tryouts, SAC camps and Skill sessions available at WCJH starting August 19.

I will be sending out google forms for sac and skill camps based off the athletes that sign up for tryouts.
Mission Statement: WoodCreek Junior High, in partnership with the community, parents, and students, will provide a safe, positive, engaging learning environment that is devoted to empowering each student to become a productive, responsible, respectful citizen while achieving academic excellence.
