Technology Support for Students and Families

What to Do Before Contacting Technology Support

There are many things that could cause a problem with your device. No matter the cause, troubleshooting is often a process of trial and error. Prior to contacting Tech Support we suggest restarting your computer

Restarting your device can solve a lot of basic issues. It will force programs to close and may trigger software updates. This is a time-saver. When you contact Tech Support, you can let us know you’ve already completed this troubleshooting tip.​​​​​​

To restart your BSD computer:

Get Help with Technology

Students and families can get technology support by phone, email, or in-person. All students have access to the district’s Student How-To Guides online. Sometimes, restarting a device can solve basic issues.

Access to Technology and the Internet

In service of equity, we are committed to ensuring all K-12 students have a device and Internet access. This applies to all students, regardless of the instructional model you selected (temporary remote/hybrid or virtual). We issued iPads to students in grades K-1 and laptops to students in grades 2-12. This provides all students access to continued learning, engagement and connection opportunities.
