Requesting help with your technology & Submitting a work order
Work orders can now be started by emailing email@example.com. Please describe your issue and include your building and room number. That is all that is necessary to start a new work order.
Once the work order has been placed you will receive status updates as well as any follow up questions through your email. You will stay up to date with the status of your request until the order is closed.
We are excited about the increased ability to provide the staff at USD253 better service. Please feel free to call or email the help desk with any questions.
