    1. As a first step, contact the I-SS Help Desk at isshelpdesk@iss.k12.nc.us or via phone at (704) 761-8501 to determine if the issue can be fixed or it will require a work order.

    2. If Help Desk determines the machine must be brought in for repair, the student must create a work order for any damages or tech repairs. (Note: if school personnel are putting in the work order for the student, please make sure that the student’s name is on the work order - subject line & on the work order - so the technician can respond via email to the student to set up an appointment for pick-up and/or drop-off. You can submit the work order in the student’s name instead of your own and this will help technology dept keep in contact with student, and then add yourself to the work order.)
      1. Enter a work order here
      2. Instructions for completing a work order

    3. In the work order, please put a student/parent contact phone number, so an I-SS Technician can schedule a pick-up/drop off appointment with the student/parent.

    4. Helpdesk will verify work order has all information needed and will transfer work order to the  “Ready to Schedule Appointment Queue”

    5. A technician will pick-up a loaner & assign to the student in 1to1 (Held by and Assigned to) and update work order with the loaner asset number.

    6. After a loaner is assigned, a technician makes an appointment with a parent/student for pickup and updates work order with appointment information.

    7. After appointment has been made, technician transfers work order to “Appointment Made, Ready for Delivery Queue”

    8. After the appointment is confirmed, the student will drop the device off at their designated Drop Off/Pick Up Location - Location will be marked by signs on site - (see Zones and Schools below)
