Distance learning

Access to distance learning materials

The Distance Learning Plan is provided for NISD students and families to access instructional materials from home via the MyNISD Portal. Students and staff have access to the portal, by using their student's NISD username and password (S-number/Password)—not the Home Access Center (HAC) password.

Once logged into the MyNISD Portal, look for the "Access Distance Learning" icon. Once you click on the "Access Distance Learning" icon you may need to respond to one or two login verification screens before the list of distance learning items is displayed.

I need my student's S-number/Password

  • If your student needs help with their NISD username and/or password:

    Begin by asking your child if they know their lunch/library number. This is their S-number. If your child does not know their lunch/library number, then the Home Access Center (HAC) is the next easiest way to find your student's S-Number/Password (found under the “Registration” tab). Log in to Home Access Center (HAC) with your HAC registered email and password. Once you are logged in, and are on the Home screen, click Registration to locate your student’s S-Number/Password.

For assistance obtaining your student's S-number/Password, contact your child’s campus or the NISD Technology Help Desk at (210) 397-7700.

What if I do not have a Home Access Center (HAC) account?

If you do not have a HAC account and would like to create one, please complete this online form and NISD staff will respond as quickly as possible to the email address you provide.

What if I do not have a computer and/or Internet?

Northside ISD has developed a device request process to assist District students who do not have access to electronic devices and/or the internet at home. Details are on NISD's COVID-19 website. (Device requests cannot be submitted in HAC.)
