IC will be asking you to change passwords throughout the year. Please know we have no way of retrieving your password and to change it we have to place a work order.  Please be sure to write down your password.

If at any time you think your password has been compromised, please be sure to let us know so that we can have this changed.  Your login info above can now be used when logging into IC and this is very important to not let anyone know your login credentials.

BYOT for Students
-Students will learn how to connect their own devices once we have gone forward with BYOT rollout.  We ask that until students have gone through the Digital Passport through the UA STEM class, no student be allowed to bring their personal devices or allowed to login while in LBES.  Students who are approved to BYOT will be given a “Passport Drivers’ License”.  Melanie Roberts/Gail Lanham/Kristie Ferguson will show students how to login and connect.
 

AUP
-Staff and Students need to have an AUP on file.  This is to ensure that technology programs and equipment are being used in the correct manner. 
-Students who do not have a signed AUP on file will not be allowed to login to any workstation here at LBES.  Notes will be sent home to those who do not have AUP’s. 
-Please remember that anytime your students are logged in on the computers in your room you need to watch them.  If they somehow get into a program that is inappropriate it will be your responsibility.  If this were to happen please report to administration as soon as possible.

  2. Things to make note of…
    1. Red Light Flashing means that temperature is high or that the projector is cooling down after being used. Let it cool down and try turning on again later.
    2. Projector is doing strange things.  We have been told to unplug the projector and let it sit for 3-5 minutes and plug back in.  This normally resets everything and the projector begins to work properly.
    3. Remote. If you use the remote to turn your projector on and off it sometimes interferes with the wall and projector communicating correctly.  If you find that your wall button does not work and you have used the remote, simply unplug your projector and this will reset everything.  Be sure to unplug both cords from the outlet.
