Sheldon ISD Technology Help Desk - NEW Hours!

New way to submit Technology Help Desk Tickets

In order to submit an IQ ticket (help ticket), simply go to sheldonisd.incidentiq.com or log into MyLink and launch IncidentIQ from the dashboard. The login page will authenticate you against your network credentials and sign you in. Since this is pulling from our Active Directory, we try to pre-populate as many fields as possible and save as many steps as we can for you.

You can also open a IQ ticket by simply emailing tickets@sheldonisd.incidentiq.com – since accounts are synced the ticket will be opened with your name and location already in the system if you use your district email account (Example: brianmartinez@sheldonisd.com)

Tips to submit a ticket

The Help Desk module in Eduphoria will be turned off and no longer responding to tickets there. If you are waiting on a pending ticket, please open within the new system.

Sign up online to give back through the employee scholarship fund

Each year Sheldon ISD employees donate a small portion of their paychecks to provide scholarships to graduating seniors. Last year, the Employee Scholarship Fund gave $16,000 to deserving seniors. Please consider a donation to this program. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Previous middle school building receives new name - Sheldon Education and Community Center

At the Aug 3 school board workshop, administration recommended the previous building for King Middle School be named the Sheldon Education and Community Center (SECC). This multipurpose facility will be used for employees as an educational facility for training and offices, and thanks to a partnership with Harris County Public Health Department, it will also be home to a Public Mobile Health Clinic.


Portions of the SECC will be used as a reception area for community members being served by a Public Health Mobile Clinic stationed on the southwest parking area of the building. In August 2020, King Middle School students moved to the building formerly used as King High School (off of C.E. King Parkway) when the new King High School facility opened off the Beltway 8 earlier that year. Renovation expenses are covered in the partnership agreement with Harris County and are expected to be completed this fall.


“The Sheldon Education and Community Center is designed with a purpose of inclusion,” said Superintendent Dr. King Davis. “We want our community to be able to take advantage of the space it provides by having access to a local health facility without having to travel outside of our Sheldon community.”


In addition to a local health facility, Sheldon ISD is planning stages to use the SECC for adult education courses and community sports. These opportunities would open up the building for the entire community to take advantage of programs within Sheldon ISD.
