KISD Offers Tech Distribution During Closure

In light of the closure of all Texas school districts until April 3, KISD’s Technology Department has come up with a process for checking out and distributing technology to students so that they may continue their courses online.

A limited number of Chromebooks and WiFi hotspots will be available for pick-up Monday through Friday, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. starting Monday, March 23. The technology will be distributed at the following campuses:

Before picking up the technology, families must fill out a form to request a Chromebook or a MiFi. Families that are unable to fill out the request form online should contact their home campus.

Furthermore, KISD sent families an email on Thursday, March 19, detailing the technology distribution process and more. The email has been copied below for convenience.
