Facility of Guest Speak Tech Request Form link


If you are using a CHS facility (e.g. Practice Gym) or have a guest speaker needing to use tech, please use this form to create a high priority ticket so that IT can ensure it runs smoothly. As much advance notice as possible is appreciated, especially if a specific program or audiovisual component is needed.

(Do not use this form for normal work orders.)

Teachers must complete GCN training by October 1. If you were not given a user ID or have forgotten it, first click on the red link saying that at the bottom. If that does not work, contact for help.



Google Classroom can be used to create a classroom hub for news and assignments. It works seamlessly with Google Apps for Education like Docs and Slides.

All teachers should have access to the CHS Announcements class on Google Classroom. Please email Ms. Perez if you do not have access.

Please email with as much detail as you can give. The request will automatically be sent to all 3 members of our site’s technology staff and be assigned accordingly. Please do not email technology staff individually as it will result in duplicate tickets. If the ticket involves broken equipment, please leave it clearly marked in your room. Thank you
