Technology Blog and Canvas Login Page Maintenance on Sunday, November 4th

I’ll be performing updates to the server that hosts the ICCSD Technology & Innovation Blog – this blog – and the Canvas login page this Sunday, November 4th, at 6 AM.  I expect that any outages will be confined to the hours of 6 AM to 9 AM, with little to no risk of outages beyond that timeframe.

During this maintenance window, the tech blog will not be accessible, and the Canvas login page – http://iowacityschools.instructure.com – will not be available.  Students, faculty, and parents can still log in to Canvas early Sunday morning, however, at the following addresses:

Winter Break Network Maintenance

In advance of winter break, I wanted to share a handful of dates when we’ll have network maintenance that will affect network, wireless, and/or internet availability within the district during the break.

  • Further work will be done throughout the day in the following buildings, but we do not expect the work to result in network outages or downtime: Alexander ES, West HS, Liberty HS, Educational Services Center, South East JH, and North Central JH.

Brief Internet Outage

There will be a brief – less than 5 minutes – internet outage district-wide on Wednesday, October 25th at 5:30 PM.  This outage is related to maintenance being performed by our ISP to resolve a problem we’ve identified.  

Connectivity should be restored for all devices immediately after the maintenance is completed, with no action required on the part of users.
