Informing, Entertaining, and Engaging the Marshallese Community

Marshallese TV was established in 2013 as a platform to engage and inform the Marshallese community. The production is a collaboration between the Springdale Public Schools District Communications Department and ESL Department. The program highlights community events, entertainment options, cultural topics, and critical information.

One of the core principals behind the production of Marshallese TV is the concept: "If you can see it, you can be it." The goal is to highlight high-achieving members of the community in an effort to demonstrate the opportunities available to Marshallese students of Springdale Schools.

We upload episodes regularly on on the Springdale Public Schools YouTube channel and our Marshallese Facebook page, “Springdale School District ilo kajin Majol”.
