Logins and Passwords

Typically after breaks we see an influx of new students registering in the county. This video link will provide you with instructions on how to look up your students passwords and usernames in iNow.


Please remember: it takes up to 48 hours for that information to sync with Clever once it has been received.

Work Orders


If your technology equipment isn't working properly, email the following email address to submit a work order:


Thurman Francis - tfawo@rcschools.net

or

Brown's Chapel - bcewo@rcschools.net


**It is VERY IMPORTANT for you to put WORK ORDER in the subject line of your email.**

This is a procedure we have in place to keep all work orders organized
and as a result they are able to be processed more efficiently.

Include the following in the email.......
1. Your room number
2. The RC Asset Tag of the equipment if it has a tag number.
3. What problems are you experiencing with the equipment? What is it doing/not doing? Please be as specific as possible as this helps our technicians to better diagnose the problems.

Our technician will visit the school one day a week to address work orders. It is very important that you email your work order to tfawo@rcschools.net or bcewo@rcschools.net prior to the technician's visit.


Please see the example below.
