Top Tech Questions
What is the Helpdesk?
Its the way tech support requests are tracked and managed. To contact the helpdesk, email email@example.com, with your name, school, a description of the issue, and what steps you’ve taken to resolve and how many people are having this problem. If you don't have access to email, ask a colleague to submit a ticket on your behalf.
What's the process for ordering technology or tech supplies?
All requests for new technology and tech supplies must be requested through the helpdesk.
Why are certain websites blocked?
The Children's Internet Protection Act (CIPA) requires that K-12 schools and libraries in the United States use Internet filters and implement other measures to protect children from harmful online content as a condition for federal funding. Teachers or students can request temporary access to sites for research by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org and submitting a helpdesk ticket.
