The STC....know who this is in your building! Be nice to your STC.....take him/her treats! STC's are the first points of contact for technology questions in your building: questions, repair needs, etc.

Network/Email Access

You need to complete a Staff Demographics Form. See the secretary or School Technology Coordinator (STC) in your building for this form. All users have a User Directory (U drive) with 1 GB of storage available as well as a OneDrive with 1 TB of online storage available. Save files to your OneDrive if you would like to access those files from home. Do not save files to the C drive or desktop of the computer as they will be erased during computer maintenance.

Infinite Campus

Infinite Campus is the web based student information system used by the state of Kentucky. Your log in credentials were created with the submission of the Staff Demographics Form. Check with the secretary or Infinite Campus Building Coach for these credentials.
