Name change? School change? 2016 edition

Tags: ,

Changing schools for 2016-2017? Changing your name? If either of these pertain to you, there are a variety of computer-related implications, particularly for certified staff members with a staff laptop.


School changes

Beginning the week of July 5th, we will start updating the user accounts of all staff members who are changing schools for the 2016-2017 school year. After that time, these staff members will begin to have permissions to email groups for their new schools.

Additionally, staff members who are changing schools and have been issued a School District 21 laptop will be contacted during the summer about bringing in their laptop for updating. After the laptop has been moved to the new school, the next login within a School District 21 school will see the printers automatically updated from the old school to the new school.

*Student Services staff members who have individually added IDEA printers to their staff laptops, will need to file a Help Request to have these computers manually removed. Then, they will need to add new IDEA printers at their new school manually at the start of the school year.


Name changes

When staff members have a name change, we will need to do work over a two-day period on their computer. We will need their computer in order to:

  • Make the appropriate changes in our Active Directory & Google Apps for Education system
  • Create these changes on the staff member’s computer, resetting the account name

*Please note that name changes can only be completed by the Information Services team after they have been formally completed with Human Resources.

Staff members should contact the CCSD21 Tech Center & Information Services Office by completing a Help Request online at least 48 hours in advance of the Name Change Session you have chosen in order to sign-up. Then, you can drop off your machine on the designated day and time at the Tech Center in the CCSD21 Administration Center (behind the Business Office–Please enter through Door 2A on the east side of the building):
