Welcome back, Higley Knights! We hope you all had a restful summer and that you and yours are doing well. This has been an interesting past few months, to say the least, but we are really looking forward to seeing you all again on Monday, July 27th, through our virtual class meetings!
As we return to school remotely, we will use our Canvas online platform as a base of operations for all classes. So the first day of school will look different than the typical first day of school.
Students are expected to log on to Canvas on Monday, July 27th, at 8:00 a.m. and attend their first hour class, which will be a synchronous virtual learning session. Links for the online synchronous learning sessions are located on your student's Canvas homepage for each course.
Canvas website: husd.instructure.com
Password: S.00##### (S.00 then school ID number)
After first hour, students will report to their next class period, again through the link provided in their second hour Canvas classroom, and so on, per the following Remote Learning Schedule.
7 – 7:55
8 – 8:55
9 – 9:55
10 – 10:55
11 - 3
No direct instruction – students are expected to work on assignments from all classes
The following link includes video tutorials for the district on how to access student remote learning platforms. Not only will these links help access curricular platforms but will also help you troubleshoot any issues you may encounter: https://www.husd.org/Page/47100
If you require technical assistance with login information or access to specific curriculum resources, please contact us by phone at 480.279.7011 or email.
Teachers will be reaching out to their first hour students to ensure that you have access to the appropriate platforms prior to the first day.
We look forward to connecting with you this coming Monday!

Re: College Prep English
Higley High School is eager to offer a new dual enrollment course this year called College Prep English. College Prep English is not an honors or accelerated course and serves as a 12th grade English course that fulfills the Arizona high school graduation requirements. Additionally, the course can be taken for dual enrollment credit through Chandler Gilbert Community College. Students can earn ENG 101 and ENG 102 course credits with successful completion (a grade of C or higher) of the course. An overwhelming majority, if not all college students, must complete the basic ENG 101 and ENG 102 courses in almost every pathway and these course are universally transferrable from CGCC to all Arizona Universities. Additionally, Chandler Gilbert Community College has transfer agreements with a large amount of colleges and universities around the country that will allow this course to transfer as the required basic English courses. This class is strongly encouraged for anyone who even has the slightest inclining of post-secondary studies as they can gain exposure to an entry level college course, complete it with their high school teacher and cohort at a slower pace over the course of an entire high school year (as opposed to the condensed 17 week traditional college semesters), and start their post high school career with some college already complete.
If you are enrolled in a different 12th grade English course and are interested in requesting College Prep English please complete the class change request below.
If you have any further questions regarding the course or dual enrollment please contact James Walker at email@example.com or 480 279 7319
Included below is the course guide description for College Prep English:
COLLEGE PREP ENGLISH 1 & 2 (will be Dual Enrollment ENG 101/102) This is a college-level course designed for students to complete English 101 and 102 at the university.
