The Great D91 Bootup!

We are asking for a district-wide effort in booting all windows computers during the same time period. Reinfection of clean computers can occur when an infected computer boots, which is why it is important to take this seriously. It is very critical that everyone pitch in!

Date:  Thursday, Nov. 15
Time:  9:25am - 11:35
Duration: 2 hours, minimum

Instructions:

  • If you still do not have a dot on your computer, submit a ticket.
  • If you are already using your computer prior to 9:25, please restart and login again.
  • There is no problem with starting earlier and keeping your computer on past 11:30.
  • Keep computers awake during this 2 hour window of time.  This can be done in several ways:
    • Keep using it (type, move the mouse, slide finger across the touch pad)
    • Change the settings on the computer so that it doesn’t power down or go to sleep for the duration.  You can search the internet for detailed instructions on how to do this, but briefly for Windows 10 – type ‘sleep’ in the search bar in the lower left corner of your screen (it displays ‘Type here to search’).  Click on ‘Power and sleep settings’ and select never in the two boxes under the heading ‘Sleep’.
  • If leaving a computer unattended, lock it by pressing Ctl-Alt-Del and select ‘Lock’.
  • Lids up on laptops.
  • Look out for those around you.  Boot theirs too if they aren’t here and log in with your own username and password.
  • At 9:25, we plan to play a reminder message on speakers and phones across the district so that you don’t forget.
  • See if students can help out!

Thank you so much for helping us help you!  Camille Wood, Director of Technology, Idaho Falls School District 91.

The State of Idaho Updated Tax Tables in July 2018

The State of Idaho updated their tax tables in July 2018.  The updated tables have severely changed the calculation of state tax.  See Idaho State Tax Document.  You may want to compare your September check to May or June’s check to see the difference in state tax withheld.  The Idaho State Tax Document explains the change and has a worksheet to help you determine what allowances you should claim for your Idaho State tax.  Your allowances for Federal tax and Idaho State tax can be different.  The example on page 4 shows you how to submit a new W-4 with different allowances.

Policy Review For Employees

What Every Employee Should Know

Please make time to complete this annual policy review, which provides employees with up-to-date information about district policies and procedures. This presentation reinforces our personal and professional responsibilities as we work to provide a nurturing learning environment for all students. It is not meant to be all inclusive, but provides employees with reasonable knowledge and adequate notice of acceptable and unacceptable behaviors. 

 

Holiday Pay and Leave Allocations Full-Time Classified Employees

Holiday pay and leave allocations for full-time classified employees are calculated by taking the average of the hours scheduled in a normal work week divided by the days scheduled per week. This is in accordance with Idaho Code 33-1216.  For example, if a full-time classified employees is scheduled for 29 hours per week, the average hours per week are 5.8.   This employee’s holiday pay and leave allocation will be based on 5.8 hours per day.
