Grant Funded Hotspots Allow At-Home Learning for MHS Students

Marion High School will start required courses on April 20, 2020. In order to make online classes possible, MISD staff have contacted every high school student’s family to inquire about internet access to ensure equal access to course material. The District is providing hotspots to families without internet access.

The hotspots were originally purchased by the Marion Independent School Foundation & Alumni Association during the 2019 Spring Marion Grants cycle to provide summer learning access for English Language Learner (ELL) students and high school students behind on graduation credits. They will now assist current students with connecting to current course work while staying safe at home.

Thanks to the District’s 1:1 device initiative (which started in 2018) and these hotspots, the Marion Independent School District is able to provide high school for-credit courses through the end of the school year. This will allow students to stay on track for courses required for high school graduation.
