    Issues with Devices and other Technology
    If you are having issues with your technology please submit a technology ticket. Your issue will be addressed as soon as possible. Please refrain from emailing technology staff directly, as this may result in delays in getting the issue resolved. In recent years to accomdate the everchanging landscape of technology use in Covid times, we've been far more relaxed about using the ticket system. However, as we move forward we need to get back to relying upon the ticket system for all technology request to better support the operations of the District.
