Welcome Back from Technology Services!

As your staff starts to trickle back in for the start of the school year, you may want to use one of your teacher workdays to make sure that EVERY piece of technology is turned on and logged into. This includes laptops, PCs, iPads, and even Chromebooks. There have been several updates over the summer months to settings and even the browser version of Chrome, hence the need to even power up Chromebooks, and some of the updates MAY take a significant amount of time. So, to avoid infringing on instructional time, we recommend this happens BEFORE the students return.


In addition, we are also anticipating some VoIP issues since all of the phones were likely unplugged over the summer months. Phones should be plugged into the same exact port that was used last year. We tried to mark these ports with a "v" for "voice". So, if people are experiencing phone issues-this can be the first layer of trouble shooting. And remember-phones stay in the classroom they were originally assigned-they can be reprogrammed for a new teacher via the spreadsheet from Shirley Nixon.
