Mount Airy City Schools is grateful for the learning opportunities that will become available to students through SparkNC. With the growing needs across the state regarding workforce demands of technology-based industries, students graduating from Mount Airy High School will be able to enter a pipeline toward future high-tech careers. This aligns with the district’s efforts to increase workforce development opportunities for all students.
Mount Airy City Schools was one of 13 school districts to gain approval for the 2022-2023 innovative initiatives and one of three to be awarded the larger digital learning impact grant. Students and staff will be positively impacted by $94,000 each year for the next three years for a total of $282,000 thanks to the district’s project Digital Remix.
