Student Computer Troubleshooting Guide
SSS Dept. staff have the option to text some families. Review this PowerPoint PRIOR to using text messaging.
Important Reminder: TVS account changes
Fill out this survey (bookmark it for future use) for TVS phone, email, or in-state address changes.
Be sure to fill out the survey completely. To make the correct changes, Leigh Ann needs to know whose addresses and phone numbers need to be changed (e.g. which parent or both or is it the LC; whose phone # and is it the home or cell). She also needs to know the student first and last name along with their student ID# and if they have siblings.

High school grad plans
FYI: after much discussion, we will not be using the K12 Grad Plan Tool. PowerSchool, the program where we keep official transcripts, has a Grad Plan Tool option that we will be using so as not to duplicate work. At this point, Kristi Korfanta-Harris, as part of her new role, is getting trained on this process and will set up training for our staff.
More to come.
