The Digital Learning department supports all learners and leaders in the implementation of KISD's full and comprehensive curriculum to empower them to learn to their maximum potential and achieve success in their futures. Our mission is to make the use of innovative technologies accessible to all.
Each of the elementary libraries were given a number of items to establish a Makerspace allowing for hands-on learning. These spaces include paper circuitry, simple electronics, LEGO, robotics and more. Talk to your campus librarian to find out how your child can take part in this innovative learning.
In the summer of 2018, Killeen ISD had our first ever STREAM camp for students in grades First through Eighth. Offered for one week at each of four elementary campus libraries, students experimented, coded, created, tinkered, crafted and discovered!

Schoology for Parents
Has your child mentioned using Schoology for assignments? Schoology is a learning management system that allows teachers to share resources, administer assignments, tests and quizzes, and monitor discussions. Use of the system is not a requirement for teachers, however many teachers are utilizing this robust system. If you haven’t already received an email about creating a parent account, please reach out to your child’s teacher. Each student has an individual parent code that will allow you access to see his/her assignments and submissions!
Battle of the Books
Several elementary and middle school campus librarians have received yearly grants to engage in district-wide Battle of the Books. Teams of up to 5 students per campus compete by answering questions based on up to 20 books. Elementary students, grades third through fifth, answer questions from the previous year's Bluebonnet Reading List, while middle school students compete based on the Lone Star Reading List, also of the previous year.
Killeen ISD promotes digital wellness across all grade levels for both staff and students. It is important to know how to be good digital citizens, making smart choices online, not engaging in cyberbullying, knowing how to determine quality and factual information, finding and using resources without breaking copyright, and being aware of the dangers of social media.
Each elementary and middle school campus has offered, or will offer, a parent session on parenting in the digital age. Please reach out to your campus for more information. The district will be offering district-wide sessions as well. More information will be posted here.
