Student Device Issues - District Issued Chromebooks and iPads
Students attending in-person classes having issues with their device should first reach out to their teacher to troubleshoot the issue together (broken link, incorrect file permissions, etc.). Depending on the issue the teacher may resolve the issue, submit a technology help desk ticket on the student's behalf, or direct students to the office (K-5)/school library (6-12) for additional assistance.

Staff and the Media

NEWS MEDIA: Employees of the District should contact the Director of Communications, and their principal/supervisor if they are asked by a reporter to speak about District events or initiatives in which they will be identified as a staff member of the District. This should occur prior to any on or off camera interviews, statements, and photographs.  Additionally, if interested in sharing a positive story with the media, please work with the Communications Department before initiating contact with a news station. 
SOCIAL MEDIA: We recognize that many of our employees are active social media users. As a school district, we also incorporate social media as part of our communications strategy. The lines between public and private, personal and professional, are blurred online. Staff are asked to carefully consider what they post online and how it may be perceived.
