Assistance During Closure

The IT Help Desk telephone line at 619-209-4357 (HELP) is working and agents are on duty during normal business hours (7am - 5pm, Monday - Friday) to take your calls.

You can also submit requests for assistance through the District's self-service portal to the online Cherwell ticketing system at https://sdusd.cherwellondemand.com/.

Additionally, you can email your request for assistance to us at helpdesk@sandi.net and our Cherwell system will automatically turn your email into a Help Desk ticket. Please make sure to include your name, employee ID, and a telephone number where you can be reached.

Please note that Help Desk agents are working remotely and the capabilities of agents to provide technical support may be somewhat limited.

Thank you for your understanding.

Device Retirement (This policy has been suspended during the closure)

After an IT device has been in service at the district for 5 years, the IT department may remove the equipment or administratively disable it in order to keep the districts network secure, efficiently utilize the district's technology support resources, and reduce ongoing infrastructure and licensing costs to the district.
