Welcome to Houston ISD’s UIL Academic District Meet!

Please make sure that you have created a Speechwire account and entered your students into your team roster before beginning the registration process.

If you need a refresher on this, please follow this link to the resources we discussed at our district planning meetings: http://www.houstonisd.org/Page/153227

Here are the relevant details for the meet:

Date: February 15, 2020

Location:  Sharpstown High School, 7504 Bissonnet, Houston, 77074

Arrival: Please arrive by 8:00A to ensure you are not late for any roll calls or events*

                *Speechwire changes must be completed by 3:00 PM the day before the tournament

Registration closes Friday, February 7, 2020 at 5:00 PM.

Registration now requires for you to input your volunteers. The system will ask you what your “type” of volunteers you are providing (i.e. “Social Studies”, “Spelling”, etc.). Selection of these “types” is not a guarantee that the volunteer will exclusively work in that event, nor does it suggest that event is all we require. Please remember, any volunteer should be available the whole day (7:30-4:30P). E-mail me if this is an issue.  We will order lunch for all coordinators and volunteers with names in Speechwire.  If no volunteers are listed in Speechwire, we will only order lunch for the coordinator.

If your school has a bus package, please remember it is your responsibility to reserve the buses in plenty of time and PLEASE reserve early enough to arrive before 8:00A so you can be sure to account for any “morning-of” mishaps. “Buses running late” will not shift the start time of the tournament or other events.

The registration will kick your student out if you attempt to cross enter a kiddo. So please make sure you are following the conflict pattern rules and schedule. Should you get an error message that is incorrect, please screenshot and save. Complete your registration and then email me the screenshot so we can troubleshoot for that specific student but ensure that your team is ready to go. Please be patient. I know it can be annoying to be the guinea pig but the end result should make our tournaments 100x smoother!

Note that by registering your students in this tournament, you take full responsibility and ownership that each participant has completed and signed a copy of the “Extracurricular Code of Student Conduct” that is required by Houston ISD and the Professional Acknowledgement Form required by UIL from coordinators.
