ECE - Empowering Children Educationally
HPS - Virtual Learning Registration
We are excited to offer our scholars and opportunity to participate in the Virtual Learning Institute. For parents seeking a virtual option, this would offer your child to engage in a rigorous curriculum by Pearson. Please fill out one form per child you are interesting in enrolling in our virtual learning program. A commitment of at least one semester is required for the virtual learning program. If you have any questions please contact Dr. Aabed at aaabed@hamtramckschools.org.
*Some of you have been receiving phone calls asking you if you are interested in registering for the Virtual Learning Institute. Please feel free to call or email, if you have questions. The registration link is below:
