Due to this "world wide" pandemic, our devices have not be received as anticipated. Houston County Schools do not have devices to issue to virtual students at this time. However, Covid-19 has affected many families and their situations have changed. If you currently have a device and wish to be considered for the Virtual Option, your needs will be addressed and considered at the local school level by your Principal. Please contact your Principal to discuss your options. Applications will be accepted until Noon on Thursday, September 3rd--You may visit your base school or our county website at www.hcboe.us to access the application. If you do not have a device at home, or you chose the Traditional Option, we will see you on September 8th as we begin a new school year.
Molly White (Alabama) and I have partnered with other college reps to create our very own Wiregrass College Night. We have scheduled this virtual event for next Tuesday, September 1st at 6:00. We can’t wait to connect with your seniors this year!
We hope you’re doing well and staying healthy! While this year may look a little different, we want to support our seniors in the Wiregrass Area by continuing to make the college decision-making process as easy as possible. A group of universities have come together to form a college panel and we will be hosting a “virtual” session for prospective students and their parents. Our goal is to provide you with a base knowledge of the college search process, college admissions and the application process, and scholarships/financial aid.
This “virtual” college panel will take place over Zoom. Zoom is free for participants to use. In order to protect the privacy of students and their families, all guests will have their microphones and cameras set to be off. We will be using Zoom Webinar function so only the college representatives will have their microphones and cameras on.
