TBAISD Technology Services Scheduled Maintenance
If you would like to subscribe to our TBAISD Technology Services Scheduled Maintenance Window Calendar click here.
For computer and network operations to operate at peak efficiency the TBAISD technical team needs to perform regular maintenance. Maintenance nights are scheduled the 2nd and 4th Thursday of each month beginning at 6:15 PM. Typical “down” time is 1-2 hours. We will strive to have all systems back to normal operation by 6:00 AM the following day. During these times applications may have intermittent availability. Though most applications would only be down for a brief time during the maintenance window, services requiring downtime of more than one hour will be designated as “extended maintenance.”
The following applications will undergo monthly scheduled maintenance:
- TBAISD Portal/Google Apps
- Meal Magic (food service)
- PowerSchool (PowerSchool Admin, PowerTeacher, Parent Portal)
- Ensemble (Video Server)
- JAMF (iPad Management)
- SysAid - Support Desk Ticketing System
- H: Drives, T: Drive, Student Drives
This webpage serves as a public reminder of TBAISD scheduled maintenance and network outages. The ISD is not responsible for work lost during these outages. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation. Notice (April 2019)
