Online Textbooks and Instructional Programs
The DeSoto County School District provides parents and students easy access to their online textbooks when the students are entered in to PowerSchool (the student information system). For questions regarding the textbooks, the parent or student should always contact his/her teacher via Schoology for more detailed information.

MyVRSpot Digital Storytelling Platform
DCSD provides teachers and students with a MyVRSpot Digital Story Creation and Video Editing account. MyVRSpot is a powerful digital tool and allows users access to over 4 million clips of footage and images and more than 8 thousand audio clips for use in the classroom and/or student projects. Students can share his/her projects with their teachers directly in a private classroom group and safely showcase or present those videos and MediaSpot projects with their peers, friends or family. There is no additional software to "download" and all work is editing online within the district MyVRSpot platform.
In addition to student accounts, teachers can upload youtube videos for use in the classroom while being assured that the commercials and questionable content will be removed while viewing and use MyVRSpot in conjunction with our learning management system called Schoology.
Student Credentials: Students in grades 3-12 have personal MyVRSpot accounts. Students can log in using their Office 365 email credentials, (the same login used for Schoology). The district is working on Pre-K-2 student access for the 2020-21 school year.
