Troubleshooting Flowchart

​​​​If a parent or student has a technology problem, the first step is to contact your teacher.  If the teacher is unable to assist, he/she will escalate the issue to Library Media Technology Specialist (LMTS).  The LMTS will contact the parent/student.  If the LMTS is unable to resolve the issue, he/she will place a work order to have the device repaired OR will set an appointment to swap the device.​
