• Device Checkout with devices

    Would you like your students to participate in an engaging, fun lesson, but lack the devices to carry it out? The Instructional Technology Department has devices you can checkout to use with your classes! See what devices are available to be checked out and then fill out the form below to indicate what you would like to check out and when they are needed. Please remember devices should be used for instructional use by teachers and students, not for testing (Istation). If you have any questions, please contact Emily Killen (ekillen@ems-isd.net) or Jennifer Prince (jprince@ems-isd.net).
