Lake Bluff School District 65 is taking the necessary measures to ensure that students, teachers, and parents are getting the technical support they require as we continue to navigate through these unprecedented times

The start of this school year has not come without challenges. However, we will rise up, put our heads together and strive to work together to ensure that everyone’s needs are met.

We have implanted a plan to streamline the unrelenting workflow that continues to pour in. We are confident that this framework will help cut down on the turnaround time to address your concerns. To better assist us we ask that you fill out this form prior to reaching out to our staff. By filling out this form it allows us to identify, define, and assign how each case should be handled.

Please keep in mind that we are all in this together. That includes the various vendors, software support, manufacturers that we use to keep our systems running. Just as it’s been challenging for us, it has been challenging for all. Thus, creating a domino effect when trying to resolve issues with said vendors. For example, our student laptops were ordered in the spring and have arrived after being on backorder for almost six months.

As we continue to navigate through this unforeseen time in history, we ask that you partner with us. Let us know what your experience has been by emailing the tech department, we look forward to serving the Lake Bluff community!
