End of Year Technology Procedures

All Locations

Please do not relocate any technology even if you are changing rooms.  Computers are inventoried to specific rooms and receive settings specific to that location.  Moves and changes will be performed over the summer and are based on lists received from building administration.

Clear old and obsolete files from your "H" drive.

If you have files on the desktop, within "My Documents" or any location on the computer other than the "H" drive they need to be copied into your "H" drive.  Any files outside of the "H" drive will be deleted during the summer.  If you have iTunes libraries used for instructional purposes, please email swpsit@swindsor.k12.ct.us with the computer location and the user account the library is under.

Remove obsolete items from email.  The message archive system maintains a copy of all inbound and outbound messages.  As such, email items not needed on a daily basis can be removed from your inbox and retrieved at a later date if needed.  This is a self-service feature that allows each user to search and retrieve messages.  Your personal archive as well as SPAM filtering setting can be found by logging in at https://login.postini.com.

Save a copy of your Internet Explorer favorites.  Directions can be found in the knowledgebase at http://help.swindsor.k12.ct.us/footprints/proj4.html.

Change your password before you leave for the summer.  Many times passwords expire during the summer months.  When it does, you will be unable to access email without coming on-site to perform a password change.  Directions for changing your password can be found in the knowledgebase at http://help.swindsor.k12.ct.us/footprints/proj4.html.  When changing your password, it must be a minimum or eight characters in length.  This is a change from the previous minumum of five characters.

Submit work orders for any damaged or non-functional technology.  Work orders can be entered by all faculty and staff by going to http://help.swindsor.k12.ct.us/footprints/proj4.html.
