User Accounts

User accounts are automatically created for all employees. When the account is created, an email with username and password is sent to the employee’s personal email account. If you do not receive this information, contact Technical Support (helpdesk@isd31.net).

Your user account gets you into several systems. In most cases, the username changes, but your password is consistent between systems:

Google Workspace
ISD 31 is integrated with Google Workspace. This includes GMail for your official district email, Google Classroom, Google Drive and other related applications. We suggest you use the Chrome browser for a consistent experience when using Google applications, but most current browsers will work.

Changing Your Password
For security purposes, your password must be changed every 100 days. You will receive a notification in your “isd31.net” email Inbox 10 days before your password expires. You will also receive subsequent reminders 5 and 2 days before expiration. Please do not ignore these reminders. You will lose access to several systems if your password expires.

Your first step is to Enroll in SSRPM – This sets you up in the password reset system.

Then, when you receive your password expiration alert, Reset Your Password.

Systems Requiring Login

Your user account gets you in to several systems. In the following cases, you will use the same password:

GMail
Username: Firstname_Last@isd31.net

Skyward Student – For gradebook or student info:
Username: Firstname_Last

District Wireless Network:
Username: Firstname_Last

Windows Computer Login:
Username: Firstname_Last

Viewpoint Data Warehouse:
Username: Firstname_Last
(Contact the Curriculum Office to set up access)


Employee Access

You also have an account in the Employee Access system. Employee Access is where you go to do timesheets (if your job requires them) and check your Payroll and employment-related data. For the majority of employees (those with non-admin access to the system) this is a separate username and password. If you do not know your Employee Access username and password, do the following:

  • Go to the Employee Access Login Screen
  • Click on “Forgot your Login/Password?”
  • Check the “I’m not a robot” box
  • Type in your district email address
  • Click “Submit”

You should receive an email with your username and a link to reset your password. If you run into any other error, contact Payroll at 31124.

Technical Support

If you are in need of technical support simply send an email to helpdesk@isd31.net. While it may seem simpler to just contact one of our staff directly, submitting a request via this email address puts your issue into a queue that every member of the IT team can see. This can mean faster resolution if your local team member is busy or out of the building.
