Connectivity

Devices:
 
WISD is committed to ensuring that our students will have the devices needed for the upcoming school year and we are awaiting word from the state on assistance we may receive in this area to fully meet our needs.
 
Hotspots:
 
WISD will be making hotspots available once again for students/families that do not have a reliable internet connection at home.  A schedule for distribution of these devices will be announced at the appropriate time prior to school start.  If your family was already issued a hotspot in the spring of 2020, we ask that you keep those at this time.
 
CATS ASPIRE:
 
Due to COVID-19 and supply chain constraints with technology manufacturers, WISD is forced to cancel the intended voucher program for the CATS ASPIRE 1:1 Chromebook initiative for the 2020-2021 school year.  This program was scheduled to be utilized for incoming 7th and 10th graders.  We are still hopeful that funding from the state may make it possible for us to continue our 1:1 program through a different method. 
 
Please continue to monitor this website and social media for updates that will be posted as new information becomes available.
