Approvals are forwarded to the District IT at Siegal Center for implementation. Each user requesting access will be provided with a unique set of user ID, password, and screen access. District IT will provide written notification once access has been established which will include instructions on how to log into the system, passwords, and information regarding security policy.
217.40 Reviews and Revisions217.40.1 Requests for additions or changes to existing access levels and requests for deletion of access must be submitted in the same manner as an original request for access. In the case of security breaches, actual or suspected, a user's access may be modified or deleted by a supervisor's phone request, providing the request is followed by one via email or memo.
217.40.2 District IT should be notified of an employee termination at the same time a termination notice is submitted for that employee. Upon receipt of such notification, the terminated employee's access will be modified so as to exclude anyone from using that employee's access.
