    HEB ISD Remote Conferencing

    Remote Conferencing is now available for students who are unable to attend school in-person because they are in quarantine as the result of a positive test result for COVID-19 or for those who optionally quarantined because they are living in a household with an individual with a positive test result for COVID-19.

    Approved by the Texas Education Agency, Remote Conferencing is a mechanism by which temporary remote learning support can be provided.
