• Teacher Websites

    PISD offers a variety of platforms to facilitate effective digital communication with parents and students. Teachers are expected to have basic information on their school's pisd.edu teacher page, (see "Parameters/Expectations" section below).

    It's easy to create your teacher page! The template is already set up for you. All you need to do is enter your information (email address, phone number, conference times, a brief biography, etc.) and an image. The step-by-step instructions are linked below. You'll need approximately 20 minutes to work on this, depending on how detailed you want to get in your bio. Please let Instructional Technology know if you need help!

    In addition to their pisd.edu teacher page, teachers may choose to leverage other platforms (e.g. Google Classroom, Google Sites, Blackboard Web Community Manager). Platform consistency among grade level teams or departments should be a significant consideration. Be sure that your campus principal is aware of your choice of electronic communication.
