    Cisco Telephone System Upgrades have been Completed!

    The District-wide upgrade to the new VoIP Cisco telephone system was completed on December 14. It is very important never to move any telephone, as telephones are linked to the location for emergency services (E911 information). Information of your exact location (address, building, floor and room) is given to emergency services, so they know exactly where they are needed. Should you move a telephone to another location and someone calls 911, emergency services will go to the wrong location. If you need a telephone moved, please submit a Technology service request.

    Tips on Avoiding Phishing Scams

    Phishing is the attempt to acquire sensitive information such as usernames, passwords, and credit card details, by appearing to be a trustworthy entity in an electronic communication.
