Splendora ISD using technology grant to purchase Chromebooks, hotspots for student use

Splendora ISD (SISD) is one of 148 school districts to be awarded the 2018 Technology Lending Grant. This grant is a competitive grant which provides school systems funding to purchase technology devices which are loaned to students for access to digital instruction materials off-campus.

As a result of receiving these funds, SISD will implement a technology checkout program in grades 6-8.  Chromebooks and hotspots will be available in the library and may be checked out like a book.

Students designated as economically disadvantaged or at-risk will be given priority. This will permit students to access online instruction for their classroom which may not have been accessible before.

For more details, visit the campus librarian.
