Troubleshooting Support for SDTLs

Surface Laptops

The Microsoft Surface Laptop is provided to teachers by the district. To receive a laptop, email the helpdesk and request a Surface Laptop. A helpdesk team member will reach out to you for further information and will schedule an appointment for you to pick up your laptop. You must have an OUSD email address.


Visit our Teacher Central Surface Laptop webpage to familiarize yourself with your new device, your responsibilities to protect student data, and responsible use of the internet. The Surface Laptop runs the Windows operating system.

Aeries Editing Access for SDTLs

STLs will now have access to Aeries to be able to modify U1 fields and scan devices!

For STL's who are teachers they have additional accounts created for them. They will need to login with the aeries sign in (not with the google sign in). See screen shot for what Aeries sign in looks like. The username is firstname.lastname and pw: first initial+lastname. STLs that are teachers should have access by tomorrow if they don't already.

If you are not a teacher, STLs will login with Google. This has already been set up as no additional accounts had to be created.
