Summer Prep & Life Hacks

Getting your classroom Prepped for Summer Break
As we all get ready for the summer break there are some things you can do to help yourself for the start of the next school year. Make sure you report via a tech help ticket any issues you are having with classroom technology so they can be addressed prior to the start of next year. We seem to get a lot of tickets to start each year that include:

  • Clean Filter message on projectors
  • Lamp life messages on projectors
  • Missing or damaged devices
  • Missing or damaged cords

Help us help you by reporting any tech related issues to us now so we can make the necessary repairs over the summer - instead of a big rush to start the year. Our department has it’s hands full as it is with student laptop re-imaging (2,000 devices) and iPad redeployment (2,000 devices.) We will also be replacing a number of other devices which will require a lot of manpower from our tech’s over the summer. So, you can help by reporting any known issues now rather than waiting until the start of the new school year when things get real busy for everyone.

Also, pay attention to instructions from your Admin team and our tech department on what to do with your classroom devices prior to the end of the school year.
