We are ready to migrate the intranet webpages to Schoolwires Centricity!
This migration will free up space on our server and will move us toward cloud capabilities as outlined in The Strategic Plan: Focus on Technology, Goal 1, Strategy 2, Action Step 1.
Migrating the intranet webpages to Schoolwires Centricity enables departments to maintain information on the intranet independently, and allows employees using their authorized Schoolwires login to access internal information from home.
In preparation, a user account has been created for each employee. The public can access many areas of Schoolwires/Centricity, but when employees sign in, they are able to see additional information, such as internal/intranet information.
Users are automatically prompted to sign-in after clicking the intranet link from the district home page or the departments directory.
Internal information accessible on the intranet comes from Accounting, HR/Benefits, Social Services, Technology Services, and Warehouse & Purchasing. The intranet also includes a page with information for principals. When a district employee is signed-in to Schoolwires, an intranet link appears on associated department pages. Links to intranet information on department pages do not appear if the employee has not signed-in.
Intranet, what does that mean? Intranet: a network of pages on the web having access restricted to a limited group of authorized users (as employees of a company/organization).
Who has access to the Bibb County School District Intranet?
All employees of the District have access to the Intranet.
Is every employee required to have a Schoolwires login to access the Intranet?
Yes, each employee must use his/her authorized Schoolwires login to access the Intranet.
Should an employee who does not know his/her Schoolwires login create a new account using the Register feature?
No, a self-registered account will not be assigned to the group of authorized Intranet users, and therefore will not enable access to the Intranet.
Who should an employee contact to request an account?
Contact Stephanie Hartley in the Department of Communications to request a new account.
Who should an employee contact if he/she forgets the password to an existing Schoolwires account?
First, try the Forgot My Password button at the bottom of the sign-in window to receive an email reminder. If this fails, contact Stephanie Hartley or aTechnology Specialist.
What if an employee forgets his/her user name?
The user name cannot be retrieved with an email reminder. Contact Stephanie Hartley or a Technology Specialist for assistance in retrieving your user name.
