Frequently Asked Questions

  • I don't know my login or password?

    Posted by: Kristin Zastoupil
    Your login is tied to your district email and district computer login.  We cannot see your password, but we can reset it if you have forgotten it.  Please note, it will reset your password for all three systems (email, computer and website).  Please email webmaster@cisd.org so that we can assist you.

  • There are 5-6 pages in my teacher section. Which ones do I need?

    Posted by: Kristin Zastoupil
    The system automatically generates the pages when a section is created.  A CISD teacher needs a minimum of the Welcome page and Calendar page.  The others are optional. To delete a page, you'll click the "Actions" button to the right of the page name.

  • I have blank pages in my teacher section. How do I get rid of them?

    Posted by: Kristin Zastoupil
    There are two ways to make pages disappear.  First, when in your green teacher section, you can click on the green "active" button next to a page name, and it will make it "inactive."  It doesn't delete the page, so you can reactivate if you ever need it in the future.  Or you can click the "options" button to the right of the page name and select "delete."

  • Where is the staff photo I took on my campus?

    Posted by: Kristin Zastoupil
    The Communications Department sent these to the CTA, Technology teacher, or contact person at your campus.  Please contact them, as most staff photos were placed on the shared drive for you to have access to add it to your page.

  • I have an event I want to add to my campus and/or the district website calendars.

    Posted by: Kristin Zastoupil
    All of the calenders "talk" to each other.  It is important you place events on your teacher section calendar.  District events have been "pushed" down to appear on your teacher calendar as well.  Click here to download a step-by-step of how to "share" events with other calendars.
     
    We would rather you overuse the sharing feature than to not use it.  When you "share" an event, it sends an email notice to the campus webmasters and/or district webmaster, who must approve the event to add it to campus and district calendars.  While we don't need every homework assignment, we do like to share any fun things going on in your classroom with the community.  Feel free to email us information about upcoming events at kzastoupil@cisd.org, but we'd also prefer you share it from your calendar.

  • How do I make my e-mail "live" (clickable)?

    Posted by: Kristin Zastoupil
    Type in your email address.  Using your mouse/cursor, highlight your email address.  Click the chain link (hyperlink) button, and select the "email" tab.  Re-enter you email address and click "Insert Link."  This will make the link "live," so when someone clicks on it, it will open a new email to you.

  • What do we do if we'd like a grade-level page at our elementary campus?

    Posted by: Kristin Zastoupil
    Elementary teachers may wish to have a grade-level page (1st, 2nd, 3rd, etc.).  First, each individual teacher will need to finalize their own personal Welcome page and Calendar.  Then, email kzastoupil@cisd.org that a grade level page is needed.  The email needs to include the campus, grade level, and all teachers at that grade level.  (All teachers at that grade level will be given access to the grade level page.)
     
    Our district webmaster will email you once it is created.  Also, the district webmaster will cross-link the grade level page to your Welcome page, and vice versa, so that parents may find you by name or grade.
