  • Students in grades 3-12


    The Mississippi Department of Education has partnered with districts across the Magnolia State to provide students in grades 3-12 with access to free 24/7 academic support in English and math—no matter when, where, or how they need it.

    Support your students in getting started with Paper with the following steps: 

    1. Watch the Navigating your Student Dashboard video to learn how students can get started.

      • Log in to their Paper account.
      • Click the blue Paper Station icon in the top-right corner of the Student Dashboard.
