The Technology Department is located in Fort Yukon School with a small office in the District  Office. Someone is generally on hand during school hours. If I am not in the tech room I may  be providing support in classrooms or at other schools. Please email or call ahead to schedule  a time to meet.  

The Technology Department supports six schools with approximately 190 students and 45 faculty and staff. It supports thousands of devices including desktop computers, laptops,  tablets, printers, copiers, telephones, projectors, document cameras, and more. There is Wi-Fi and satellite internet at all of our schools. Copiers and printers are in each school. Teachers and administrators have Apple MacBooks. Students have MacBooks, Chromebooks, and iPads.  

School staff use their local school support for first level problem resolution. Issues not resolved  at the school level are directed to the district tech office.
