Items Out Email

Please look for an email in your InBox with any and all TTSD technology devices issued to you as a staff member.  Please review this email carefully and work with your school media assistant or call x4051 to renew any devices you have that are "overdue" and/or discuss items you may no longer have in your possession.

Admin By Request 

Most cyber security scams are successful because when scammers reach the computer, they have FULL admin rights to run any malicious program they want.

In order to protect the district from cyber crime, TTSD's cybersecurity insurance policy requires that our computer users not have administrator access.

As a result, all TTSD devices will have "Admin By Request" installed.  You MUST take the following steps to run updates, install software, allow system permissions (*like access to microphone or screen in Google Meet):

    1. Click the "green check mark" to launch Admin By Request
    2. Enter your email and the reason why you are needing admin access.
    3. Click Continue to ACTIVATE.  
    4. ** You will know you were granted Admin access when you see a green countdown timer.
