All additional software installs other than district standard software must be reviewed by your instructional technology coordinator. Fill out the online Non-Standard Software Installation Request form and your instructional technology coordinator will review your request.
After the form has been submitted:
Why the Technology Department needs to collect personal software CDs and licensing information if installed on NSD equipment.
The Technology Department needs to store this information in case the school district ever gets audited for software programs installed on district computers. A program with one license means that legally we are only allowed to install the program on one computer. Installing multiple copies of a single-license program is considered software piracy and is illegal.
If your staff computer ever has a problem and needs to be re-imaged or swapped out, we will have your software here and will be able to load the standard district software as well as your extra software onto a new computer before sending the replacement out to you. Personally owned software CDs and licensing information will be returned to you when it is no longer installed on a district computer.
