TECHNICAL SUPPORT FOR FAMILIES
 
As we shift to distance learning, we know families may need some technical support.
  • If you need username or login information, please contact your teacher.
  • For over the phone support call the District Office at (707)839-1549 and press "0" at the prompt. When you call for assistance please make sure to leave a message with your name, contact information, and a brief description of your issue and someone will get back to you.
  • For email support please contact techsupport@mckusd.org
 
Quick Troubleshooting Tips
 
  • Students should use their google username and password to login to their device.
  • Make sure your device is plugged in and charging. Devices that are low on power
    may take a moment to come to life.
  • Check your internet connection using the WiFi icon. The WiFi icon can be found on
    the lower right-hand area of the device's screen. Please connect the device to
    your WiFi connection shortly after receiving your device.
  • Check your internet speed using a test like speedtest.net (external site). Internet
    speeds can be impacted by a number of things including: the quantity of devices
    using the same connection, or the type of work that is being conducted.
  • Power the device off, then on, and see if the issue continues.
