Staff Email Access
about 1 year ago
As of June 29th 2016, Tekoa School District will be migrating away from self-hosted Exchange to Google Apps for Education for all Staff and Student email.
What to Expect...
We are in the process of moving your Staff email to Google Apps for EDU Hosted Services. In hopes of avoiding any major interruptions of your email delivery or any data loss, we will begin synchronizing your Contacts, Email and Outlook Calendar data to the new host over the next few days. Your existing Tekoa.wednet.edu email will continue to be delivered and you should not experience any loss of email during this transition. If you are using a mobile device to access your email or Calendar, three are apps that provide easy access to your account, email and calendar data.
How Do I Access My District Email ?
Your new email address which matches you normal computer login (first initial followed by last name followed by @tekoasd.org), this will look something like this: firstname.lastname@example.org. Your password will match your existing domain password and can be changed by logging into a computer in the district and changing your account password or by contacting the District Office if you are not on-site.
Do I need to do anything else ?
1. We ask that you please take a moment and log into your TEKOASD.ORG Google Account if you have not already done so over the course of this last school year. You should be able to start accessing your email on the new domain immediately following the completion of the migration process end of day June 29th 2016.
2. Start letting your contacts know that your email address is changing. You will continue receiving email at the tekoa.wednet.edu domain however tekoasd.org will be replacing it permanently in the future.
How do I access my calendar ?
Your existing Outlook Calendar Events/ Appointments are being copied to your new Google Calendar. Please begin using Google Calendar to schedule any future calendar entries.
Not all of my email has been migrated, what should I do ?
The majority of email has been already been copied up to your Google Account and is already accessible, however, email sent the last few days may not yet be in your inbox. In this case, you can still log in to the existing webmail client using the following website url: https://mail.tekoa.wednet.edu/owa. This will not be available after July 10th, 2016.
Where can I download the Apps for my phone and devices ?
iPones, iPads and IOS devices:
Email - Email from Google App on the iTunes Store
Calendar - Google Calendar App on iTunes Store
Android and/ or Google devices and chromebooks:
You can use native apps build into your devices, just add your TEKOASD.ORG account to your device!
Please contact the District Office if you have any trouble logging into your new Google Apps for Education email account.
