E-learning Elementary Principal
My husband and I live in Center Point (near Comfort) and have a daughter, Kara, who will be a third-grader at Fair Oaks Ranch this year. I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Interdisciplinary Studies, a Master’s Degree in Instructional Technology and hold a Principal Certification. I am currently working on my Superintendent Certification through Lamar University. I have 15 years’ experience in Public Education; all at the Elementary level. As a teacher, I taught 1st and 3rd grade, was an ESL teacher, a Special Education collab teacher and taught students that were serviced through the Gifted and Talented program. I am starting my 7th year as an Elementary Campus Administrator. This is my 5th year in BISD and I’ve had the privilege to serve the past 4 years at the Assistant Principal at Fair Oaks Ranch Elementary.
You can find more information about the E-Learning Campus on the right. Please feel free to reach out if you have any questions!
E-learning Elementary Counselor
Dear E-learning Elementary Families,
I want to introduce myself; my name is Holly Grove and I will be your child’s counselor. I am extremely excited to embark on this new adventure of E-learning school with you and your student.
This is my 2nd year in Boerne ISD and my 22nd year as a school counselor. I will be honing my computer skills as I want to be available to you and your family during this unprecedented time in our world. I will be teaching Guidance Lessons in your child’s e-classroom and hopefully starting small counseling groups a few weeks into our start of this school year.
Please don’t hesitate to reach out to me if you have any questions or need some help during this uncertain time.
We will follow the BISD district calendar for our school days. Your child will follow a detailed schedule from 7:35-3:00 each day. All students will have a mixture of Synchronous and Asynchronous learning as defined in our BISD E-Learning Instructional Plan. Students will be expected to log in throughout the day during scheduled times. When students are not online, they will be working on independent work. If you have not reviewed the BISD plan in detail, I encourage you to do so. Please click here.
Home Campus Versus E-Learning Campus
Home Campus is the campus your child is enrolled in based on your attendance zone. This is also the campus your child would attend if you select In-Person learning. The E-Learning campus is a virtual campus.
If students move between In-Person and E-Learning throughout the year for qualifying reasons, their teacher will change. It would be similar to if a student moved from one In-Person campus to another during the school year. E-Learning teachers will remain E-Learning as long as there is a need in that grade level and vice versa. If a student moves between E-Learning and In-Person during the year, the campus registrars will communicate the change to the campus Counselors/Principals.
There is a possibility that students will not be taught by a grade-level teacher from their home campus but from another BISD campus. The BISD FAQ lets families know that “Boerne ISD teachers will provide E-learning instruction. Teachers will be identified once student enrollment numbers are established.”For the FAQ, please click here.

The school supply lists will be the same for E-Learning and In-Person. Your home campus will have the actual list. They also usually post them on the websites, Facebook, and Twitter accounts as well as the PTO websites.
If your child needs a technology device for E-Learning, please reach out to your home campus principal. Students will be eligible based on qualifying criteria.
Please note that paper instructional packets will not be available as they were during the Spring 2020 school closure.
Meet the TeacherYour child’s E-Learning teacher will give you detailed information about their classroom schedule during Meet the Teacher on Monday, August 10th from 4:30-5:30.Please look for an email from your child’s teacher between 12:00-3:00 as well as expect a phone call. If you need to update your email and phone numbers in Skyward and need assistance, please call your child’s home campus.
Students that are receiving services through various programs such as Special Education, Dyslexia and GT will continue to receive those services through E-Learning. As of now, the student’s home campus will assign their case manager who will work with the E-Learning teacher. Students in the Dual Language program or that receive ESL supports will also continue to have these services provided through E-Learning.
We are excited to have our own Elementary E-Learning Counselor, Ms. Holly Grove. To learn more about Ms. Grove, see her biography at the bottom of this page.
