MIDLAND, Texas — Local school districts have been working overtime, trying to figure out how they'll be teaching your kids.

Now they're trying to figure out how they'll be the students. 

Midland ISD students will get academic enrichment materials starting Monday.

"It's going to be a variety of academic enrichment materials. It's important to recognize that we're not going to be grading these materials, it's not going to affect your grade one way or another," said Elana Ladd, the MISD communications officer.

"If you do them what it is going to affect is making sure that you're going to stay progressing so that when we get back to school you're ready to jump right back in."

The materials will also be offered online for the students that aren't picking up lunches. 

"The other important piece for us was making sure that we have high tech and low tech ways to access this information not everyone has a computer at home, not everyone has wifi so it's important to have things online and offline," Ladd said. 

Even with the schools being closed, and with or without internet students will still be fed food and knowledge.
