    Technology Accounts for Students 
     
    Every EASD student is issued a district technology account that allows them to log into district computers and access various software to which the district subscribes. It is understood that students agree to the EASD Appropriate Use of District Technology Policy 815 which states the terms for appropriate student use and also states that students will not share usernames and passwords to access district technology hardware or systems. 
     
    Usernames
    Each EASD student receives a district username that is unique to them. Student usernames typically are comprised of the first name, middle initial and last name, for example, john_b_smith.  This is not always the case since the username cannot exceed 18 characters. In that instance, the username is shortened by using only the first initial, middle initial and the last name, for example, j_b_smith. 
     
    Usernames vs. Email Addresses:
    Student email addresses are comprised of the student's username along with "@etownstudents.org" added to the end of it.
    • Username: john_b_smith
    • Email address: john_b_smith@etownstudents.org

     
    District Email Through Gmail
    To log in to your student district email account, click the "Gmail" link above or open a new browser tab and enter "mail.etownstudents.org" (without quotes). Change the user type to "Student" and enter your district username and password to log in. Click here to view Google's Gmail Cheat Sheet.
     


    New Students:
    • Contact their teacher or guidance office to find out their district login credentials.
    • Contact their teacher when having issues logging in to district systems.
    • Students in grades 4 through 12 are encouraged to create a Community Web Portal account to view report cards and progress reports, daily attendance and building announcements. Secondary students submit course requests for the following school year through the Community Web Portal during January of each year. For instructions on how to create an account, please visit the EASD Community Portal page.

     


     
    Software Accounts:
    EASD subscribes to online software programs that supplement coursework and increase learning. When a student's district technology account is created, accounts are created within the various software programs depending on their grade level.  Students will be directed by their teacher if they need to log into one of these software applications. Teachers will provide instruction on how to access and use it. The software includes but is not limited to:
     
    • Exact Path
    • Google Apps (Gmail and Google Drive)
    • Keyboarding Without Tears
    • Schoology
    • Study Island 

    Finding Technology Help

    Please contact your teacher for help with any technology system that they are directing you to use. If you require further help, please submit a tech request to the Department of Technology Services through Web Help Desk at http://support.etownschools.org

    Accessing Web Help Desk: Log in with your district username (without "@etownstudents.org") and password, enter the information requested and your ticket will be assigned to the appropriate technician based on the information entered. Enter your homeroom teacher where asked for "room number".

    Email Confirmation: Once your ticket has been submitted, you will receive a confirmation email in your district email account (click the "Gmail" link above or go to "mail.etownstudents.org" and log in with your district login credentials to check email). All communication regarding the issue will be through the ticket. You will receive emails with a log of yours and the technician's notes. 

    Adding notes into ticket: Please log back in to Web Help Desk to answer any questions or add additional notes and information in to the ticket.
