At-Home Learning Edition

Wylie ISD At-Home Learning and Technology

Yesterday, we made the announcement that Wylie ISD will be closed indefinitely. Our administrators and teachers are working hard to continue offering our students at-home learning opportunities. These at-home learning opportunities will begin on Monday, March 23rd.

The purpose of our at-home learning is NOT accountability and grades. While your students will be offered these learning opportunities, the true intent of our at-home learning has much greater meaning- prevention of learning loss. Failing to provide a quality education for students for the remainder of the year could have a far greater impact on their future well beyond 2019-20. It is our goal to set our students up for success for the 2020-21 school year and the rest of their educational journey.

At-home learning should stay positive with lots of encouragement for your students. Remember, learning is FUN!

Please see more information below about some questions that you may have regarding our at-home learning.

Will ALL of the at-home learning be online learning?

This is going to be campus-specific and you will be receiving campus communications regarding the plans for your child's at-home learning opportunities.

What about Technology Needs?

During this extended period of school closure, some of our Wylie ISD teachers will be offering online learning opportunities.

-We have a limited number of devices that we will check out, with laptops offered to high school students and iPad's offered for lower grades.

-Only 1 device will be provided per home and a parent must sign the authorized use form when the device is picked up. Students in grades 10-12 will be able to pick up without a parent but must present a Student ID as well as sign an authorized use form.

Devices will be available for check-out at Wylie High School Wednesday, March 25th from

11 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Please fill out this survey if you do NOT have a technology device (desktop, laptop, smartphone, tablet) and/or do NOT have an Internet connection at home. This is NOT a sign-up form. It is simply a way for us to collect information about needs in the district relating to technology.

What is Google Classroom and how do I access it?

Some of our online learning with be through a platform called Google Classroom. A lot of our older students are already very familiar with Google Classroom and EVERY student in the district already has access to Google Classroom.


Student Username: You will find this in Skyward Family Access on the student info tab. It will be the email address that you see next to "School" at the top of that page beside your child's picture. For most students, it will be the first five letters of the last name+ first three letters of the first name+the 2 digit year they graduate followed by

Here is an example:

My name is John Franklin and I graduate high school in 2024. My username would be

If this is not working for you, go into Family access and check to make sure what the correct username is.

Student Password: Student's birthdate in this format mmddyyyy NO SPACES and NO DASHES

Here is an example:

My birthdate is July 5th, 2001 My password would be 07052001

Our technology department has provided resources to access Google Classroom from home. Please take a look at these helpful presentations that walk you through step by step of how to log in and access Google Classroom using your school-issued username and password.

What about internet access at my house?

If you do not have internet access at your house you can start by reaching out to 211 Texas which is Texas Health and Human Services. All you have to do is pick up the phone and dial

2-1-1 or (877) 541-7905. They are there to help connect people and services. There are some companies that are offering free internet at your home during this time and they may be able to help you get in touch with these companies.

What if I have a technology question?

If you have a technology question you may email

Who do I contact if I have a question?

If questions arise, we encourage you to reach out by email to your campuses and we will get back to you as soon as we can. This will be the best way to get in contact with someone during the closure.

What is 211 Texas?

2-1-1 Texas, a program of the Texas Health and Human Services Commission, is committed to helping Texas citizens connect with the services they need. Whether by phone or internet, our goal is to present accurate, well-organized and easy-to-find information from state and local health and human services programs. We accomplish this through the work of our 25 Area Information Centers (AICs) across the state. 2-1-1 Texas is a free, anonymous social service hotline available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.

No matter where you live in Texas, you can dial 2-1-1, or (877) 541-7905, and find information about resources in your local community. Whether you need help finding food or housing, child care, crisis counseling or substance abuse treatment, one number is all you need to know.
