District 09 Information and Documents
District Contest planning is underway, but please be patient. Many facilities are taking a little longer to commit due to restrictions from COVID!

Please make sure you are joining your district’s advisor group in Schoology. Each district has its own page where advisors and the state office can connect without students. Videos of the town halls and other resource materials are posted in each district’s group. District or State Schoology use will be a different log in specific to that event.
Starting an account is free at schoology.com. You will create an account as a student. Once you have an account go to Groups and then join a new group, you will be asked for an access code. Please reach out to your district director for your group code.
