Marion Community Schools extends student wi-fi network across city

Publish Date: 04/01/2021

Marion Community Schools’ network of wi-fi hotspots throughout our city, to which our students can connect with their school-issued devices, has expanded!

This project was made possible by a $1.1 million grant from the state of Indiana to increase students’ Internet access both for e-learning and for other school work.

The locations that now allow school-provided devices to access the Marion Community Schools wi-fi network, which is filtered for safe Internet access, are:

  • Boys and Girls Club
  • The Training Center
  • Grant County Family YMCA
  • REAL Covenant Community Church / Family Resource Center
  • Prince Hall Apartments
  • Stonecrest Manor
  • Northgate Apartments
  • Hunter Run Apartments
  • Granton Place
  • Green Tree Apartments
  • Crest Lanes
  • Parking lot access at the following school buildings:
    • Allen Elementary
    • Frances Slocum Elementary
    • Kendall Elementary (front lot)
    • Riverview Elementary (front lot)
    • Justice Intermediate (north lot)
    • McCulloch Junior High (northeast lot)
    • Marion High School (north and east lots)

These hotspots can be accessed via school-provided devices 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and our Tech Department works diligently to keep this network up and running smoothly. Please note, however, that if a network issue occurs after hours or on the weekend, it may be unavailable for a time. If you run into consistent issues connecting your school provided device to the school network, you can email and we will address it as quickly as possible.
