UTHS programs can support a school or district in a variety of ways to personalize learning with budget-friendly resources to support a blended or fully online learning instruction model. All UTHS online courses and curricula are fully aligned to the TEKS and designed by expert teachers. UTHS's teachers maintain active Texas teacher certification in the subject areas they teach.
Districts can incorporate our online courses in two ways:
- Our teacher: Students take courses facilitated by a UTHS highly qualified and experienced content area teacher of record.
- Your teacher: Districts purchase digital curriculum site licenses and courses are facilitated by an in-district highly qualified content area teacher of record.
Districts which choose to purchase course site-licences enjoy the flexibility to choose curriculum sequencing and have curriculum access for one year. When the course is purchased as a curriculum, the In-District teacher of record determines their students' course grades. When UTHS courses are purchased as an online course taught by a certified UTHS teacher of record, the UTHS teacher determines the students' course grades.
