HOUSTON – At KPRC 2, we’re dedicated to keeping Houstonians informed. As part of our Ask 2 series, the newsroom will answer your questions about all things Houston.
Question: Do parents have a choice between synchronous and asynchronous virtual instruction?
Answer: Whether a student’s virtual instruction is delivered in the synchronous or asynchronous way will vary by school district and students will likely engage in both formats.
Virtual synchronous instruction requires students and teachers to interact in real-time through a computer or electronic device.
During virtual asynchronous instruction, students will work independently and teachers are required to provide daily feedback.
Here’s a look at what the virtual instruction schedule for Lamar CISD:
