Gaining access to WISD technology is a process that is started by WISD HR. With your supervisor, HR will determine what accounts and access you will need to perform your duties. Then HR will notify Technology, which will create the accounts. Technology will notify your program or department secretary. If you are a part-time employee, or a contractor, access to WISD Technology is usually not granted. If you feel you need access to email or the WISD file system please see your supervisor. They, along with HR, will explore options available to you, in your role at WISD.
Full-time employees of WISD receive a subscription to Office 365, which includes OneDrive, our cloud based file storage system. Each WISD user assigned a OneDrive receives 1 TB of file storage in the cloud. This is where you should store your files. WISD also has a collaborative SharePoint space for groups. Please see the Office 365 pages for more information on Groups.

Cell Phones are distributed by Technology to in-need employees, as determined by the program supervisors. If you feel you need a cell phone for your duties please see your program supervisor and they will initiate the process of providing you a phone.
Desk phones, phone numbers, voicemail, etc. are assigned to locations and are not usually changed, except in the case of an employee moving offices. In that case their numbers would move with them, and Technology would handle the move. Please submit a CSR for any technology move needed by you or your staff.
