Weather Notice

Huntsville City Schools will operate on a 2-hour delay on Tuesday, November 12, 2019.  The two-hour delay will also apply to all HCS employees, unless otherwise directed by your supervisor.  The current forecast does not call for accumulations of winter-like precipitation, but does include a significant wind chill.  The delay will allow time for conditional improvements to ensure safe travel and improved conditions for our buses, students, and staff. 

 

All elementary, middle, and junior high classes will begin at 10:00am.  All high school classes will begin at 10:30am.  Buses will also run on a two-hour delayed schedule. 

 

The HCS Weather Safety Team will work in conjunction with the EMA and other local agencies to monitor conditions and send out updates should any additional changes be necessary.  For more information about the weather safety decision process, please select the more information link below.

Digital Learning

According to the U.S. Department of Education’s “Use of Technology in Teaching and Learning” website:

 “Technology ushers in fundamental structural changes that can be integral to achieving significant improvements in productivity. Used to support both teaching and learning, technology infuses classrooms with digital learning tools, such as computers and hand held devices; expands course offerings, experiences, and learning materials; supports learning 24 hours a day, 7 days a week; builds 21st century skills; increases student engagement and motivation; and accelerates learning.”

In the fall of 2013, Huntsville City Schools made the move to an all-digital learning environment with 1:1 Windows laptops for all students grades 3-12 and iPads in Pre-K through 2nd grade. A wireless network provides all students at every school reliable and equitable access of digital material and resources. The shift has created educational opportunities that have impacted students in every grade. Examples of positive impacts include gains in student proficiency as measured by state and national assessments and increased graduation rates.

Digital Learning includes areas in the Information Technology (IT) Department with responsibilities including IT Networking, End-User Device Management, IT Help Desk support, and the Educational Technology Department.
