Summer Suggestions from Tech Services

  • Please share/send the links below regarding Summer Technology Instructions with your administrators, teachers and all classified staff members, as there are some revisions to last year’s instructions to incorporate GCS energy saving efforts.
    - How to Sync your One Drive
    - Summer Computer and Equipment Instructions
  • As you end this academic year, take inventory of your technology equipment, and if you find the need for hardware repair or software issues, etc. submit your ticket request. This way we can already get a head start on providing a resolution to ensure a good start for 2015-2016.

  • We want to take this opportunity to thank each of you for your continued efforts in problem solving; patience and good feedback to assist us improve our service to you. Have a great summer, get some rest and as always call us at 370-8179 or send an email to helpdesk@gcsnc.com for additional assistance.
