From Dr. Melissa Williams-Scott

The 2021-2022 School Year is in full swing after just a little over a week. We saw so much excitement in the eyes of students and teachers as they arrived for the first day of school. We have already seen students and teachers using technology tools to access curriculum. Our excitement continues to grow as we communicate with teachers, answering questions and investigating ideas with you. But teachers and students are not the only users of technology in DISD. We know that many of our staff have other technology needs. We want to remind you that the fastest way to get a work order addressed is to enter it into Eduphoria HelpDesk. The information provided allows us to immediately filter the request to the correct person, who then receives a notification of the work order. The Technology Team looks forward to continuing to support all of DISD as we navigate this new school year.
