About Houston ISD

The largest public school system in the state of Texas, the Houston Independent School District (ISD), is also the seventh-largest in the United States. Houston ISD educates more than 200,000 students in its more than 300 school campuses. Despite its large size, Houston ISD strives to offer a quality education to every student and to serve as a model of efficiency and academic excellence among schools in Texas and across the country.

Houston ISD strives to create a "college-bound culture" by educating families from the time their children are in elementary school about the accessibility of a college education, by raising educational standards, and by offering Advanced Placement and other courses that offer the possibility of earning college credit while still in high school. Once students recognize the wide variety of options available to them, they will be more likely to pursue the higher education needed for a successful career.

The Web-Centric Alternative Certification Program

If you are interested in teaching in Houston ISD or any other Texas school system but lack the proper certification, etools4Education offers the Web-Centric Alternative Certification Program (WCACP), which allows future educators to complete the coursework necessary for obtaining their teaching certificates from the safety and convenience of their own homes.

Through WCACP, future educators in the state of Texas take their certification courses directly over the Internet. The program also utilizes chat sessions, workshops, and video conferencing so that students in the program can still benefit from personal interaction with their professors, although the conversation takes place from the comfort of the students’ own homes. Because of the flexible nature of the program, these future teachers can maintain a full-time job or take care of their families during the day while they study. Those who are able to dedicate a full-time effort to the program can finish the first module in as little as 6-12 weeks. The online component of the program prepares candidates for the state-mandated one-year teaching internship, but it can be completed concurrently with the internship, however, so students who chose to do so can complete the entire program within one year.

Candidates for the WCACP must have a bachelor’s degree in any field from an accredited college or university and must have a minimum 2.5 GPA.
