In December 2018, ITSS launched our new ITSS Help Desk portal,, powered by TeamDynamix. As part of our self-service strategy, we replaced our former ticketing system, Formsite, with a new Help Desk ticketing system that provides multiple ways to interact, including self-service. Formsite has been discontinued to submit Help Desk requests.

To access the ITSS Help Desk portal, go to:, and login with your District email address and password, and then choose 'Submit an IT Request.'
