Instructional Choice Change Instructions

  • Below are instructions for changing your student's 2020-21 Instructional Choice. 

    Families who would like to change their student's instructional choice for the fourth nine-week grading period can access the Instructional Choice Change Request Form in the Aeries Parent/Student Portal from February 4-11. 

    Please note that if you have multiple students, the form will need to be submitted for each of your students individually, if you would like to request a change from In-Person to Remote@KISD or Remote@KISD to In-Person for each student. Step 3 of the instructions below will detail how to switch between students. 

    It is recommended that this process is completed using a laptop or computer; however, mobile tips are provided in the instructions for those who would prefer to complete the process from a mobile device.
