Contact the IT Help Desk
Are you having issues with your device? CRCSD families and students may contact the IT Help Desk at 319-558-2900. You may also now submit a ticket via our new ticketing system by going to https://helpdesk.crschools.us and login with your district google credentials. During the school year (August through May), the Help Desk is open from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday. During the summer (June and July), the Help Desk is open 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Thursday.
Please include the following information in your Help Desk request:
- Barcode of your machine (a six-digit number usually found on the right side of the computer)
- Type of device
- Exact wording of error messages and any potential cause of the issue
- Information specific to your request (ie: phone number, software title, questions, etc..)
If you are having Chromebook issues, first restart your Chromebook. This oftentimes fixes Chromebook issues. Please note that just closing the Chromebook does not restart it.
To charge your Chromebook, plug it into a working power outlet for at least 15 minutes before restarting the device.
To verify your wireless connection at a school building, you will be automatically connected to the CRSchools wireless network (wifi). If you are away from a school building, double-check that you are connected to wifi.
If your device needs to be repaired, please contact your school’s Library Support Team. If you are a virtual learner, please contact the Help Desk.
