Information for new employees.

Welcome to the Northshore School District! Here are some useful links and FAQs for new employees.

Your New District Account and Password
Your office manager or supervisor will have a District username and password for you to log on to your computer and email if you did not already receive the information about it in your personal email account. Please note: If you have been assigned a district computer, it is important that you login to your computer for the first time while ON CAMPUS, not at home, in order for your username and password to authenticate properly with the district network and servers. You can change your password at the website This password will be used for email, file servers, and more (visit KB Article 3 to learn all about your NSDNet Password).

Macintosh Computers
If you’re new to Macs or need a refresher course on how to get the most out of your Mac, click here. If you recently switched to Mac from a Windows PC, visit Switch 101 on Apple’s website. 

The district standard for email is Outlook Web Client, which you can get to at . This web client can be accessed from any computer with a network connection and has both your email and calendar. If you wish to access you email from a smartphone, there are free Outlook client applications for both iOS (Apple) and Android at their respective software stores.

How-To pages can be found at Outlook getting started or the Outlook Overview Webinar.

Phones and Voicemail
Visit our KB article on the Mitel phone system. More FAQs on phones and voicemail can be found under the KB category Phones and Voicemail. If you do not have a phone in your area, please have your Office Manger submit a work order to have one set up.

Technical Support
If you need technical assistance (computers, phones, projectors, or other technology related devices), each campus has an STS (School Technology Specialist) and elementary schools with less than 500 students also have TRT’s (Technology Resource Teachers). STS and TRT staff are excellent tech resources available on campus. You can also search the NSD Technology Knowledge Base online for answers to your questions. Visit the Technical Support website for system outages and alerts along with links to technology resources. For technology service requests or questions, please fill out a Technology work order ticket.

Building Maintenance
For Building Maintenance requests in your area (electrical, heating, etc), call InfoCenter at x6012. InfoCenter will create a work ticket for your building custodian.

NSD Technology Coordinators
For training in the use of instructional technology equipment such as activboards, document cameras, computers, software, etc., related district policies, all technology purchasing needs, and requests for site-based or individual training, please contact your Instructional Technology Coordinator. Northshore has 4 instructional Technology Coordinators who help teachers infuse their instruction with technology. Teachers with a need for support or "just another set of brains" to strategize the most effective use of technology in a project, unit or lesson should contact the coordinator assigned to their school (see assignments below). Coordinators can also help with locating digital resources and hardware needed for your project.
