Uh....I get a Mac?
Every certified staff member in CSD receives a MacBook Air as their dedicated device. If you're new to Mac, work with your building technician to get some basics...there's a slight learning curve if you're used to Windows -- but you got this!
To make sure we know who has which device, and what you're responsible for register your laptop here.
Google Voice for All!
Due to the pandemic this spring we moved all our certified staff to a product called Google Voice. Google voice permits you to use your CSD laptop as a phone for voice calls and text messages. Expect an email in a few days that shows you how to set up your Google Voice number.
My Obligatory Need to Scare You...
- Your laptop, your passwords, your student passwords
- How you manage your work: Keep Canby data in Canby systems. Don't move or send work to your personal accounts.
Each classroom and office space in CSD is slightly different. For this reason, consult with your Building Technician to get the lay of the land. They're there to help.
- CSD-owned devices connect to CanbySDclear Network.
- Personal Devices connect to Canby_Guest
Our Student Information System
The core of many of our systems is student data. From seating charts, to grades, to schedules, to parent contact information, Synergy will be your friend (if you like it or not).

Need an app for your students?
Data protection extends to the software we put in front of our students. The Technology Team will assess app/software requests for compatibility and security issues that protect us all!
