The laptops will be distributed to HCSD students during the week of January 4 – 8, 2021. School administrators and librarians recently met to discuss the distribution details. During the week of December 14-18, 2020, every student in the district will be participating in “HCSD Digital Citizenship Week” to learn how to properly use and take care of their assigned device. Information regarding the process of distributing the laptops will be announced by each school prior to the Christmas break. Parents may contact their child’s school directly if they have any questions.

This year, the Mississippi Legislature allocated $200 million for Mississippi Connects through two laws, the Equity in Distance Learning Act (SB 3044) and the Mississippi Pandemic Response Broadband Availability Act (HB 1788). The goal is for every student to receive the technology needed to learn at school and at home.
