Killeen ISD Starts Virtual School Year, Problems Also Arise
Monday was the first day of what will be an unprecedented and challenging school year as Killeen ISD launched its all virtual start to learning.
The district is reporting on their website that over 39,000 students were able to successfully login and begin their classes but News 10 is reporting that another 6,000 students couldn't which lead to some frustration from parents.
For those that couldn't log in, they reported that the virtual learning program wouldn’t connect at times or wouldn’t give credit for complete assignments.
The Killeen ISD has a technology hotline that parents can call if they are having issues by calling 254-336-2999. The District says they received over 3,000 calls on Monday.
Despite the frustration, KISD is still considering bringing back face to face instruction prior to September 8th and they are also asking families that have their own devices to give the district back theirs so those students without can have one.
But everyone please calm down and realize this is a first for everyone, including our educators and mistakes will be made at the beginning but we'll get through it with some patience and understanding.
