Getting Technology Assistance 

Grandview C-4 School District provides technical support through the GC-4 Help Desk.  Once a help desk ticket is submitted, technical support is dispatched.  The Help Desk staff members are available for calls and emails Monday - Friday from 8 am - 4:30 pm.  Support at the high school is also available from 7 am - 11:45 am. To contact the Help Desk dial extension 4357 (in district) or (816) 316-5190 (outside the district).  The Help Desk is located in the IT department office or in the high school library.
While in-district, you may also check or add your own work orders online by clicking here.
Please make sure to provide the problem, your name, a callback number, and your building and room.  Adding models for projectors, document cameras, and computers is also helpful. Students with technology issues should bring their devices to the GHS Help Desk in the Library.
1:1 Initiative
The Grandview C-4 School District has adopted a 1:1 initiative to provide laptops to its high school students. Students currently are provided an 11-inch Mac Book Air with a bag and clear case to cover the device.  The laptops are used at both school and home.  Students provide their own internet access at home.
Grandview School District has been awarded the T-Mobile 10 Million Project Grant.  This grant is focused on providing Internet connectivity to students with a lack of current in-home access. A lack of home Internet access means a.) no Internet access in the home, b.) multiple students in the household with access to a single computer, or c.) dial-up Internet at home.
Any student without Internet Access at home is eligible to receive a hotspot for Internet access as long as the equipment is available.  The device will be checked out to your student to use at home and should be returned at the end of the school year or when they end enrollment at the Grandview C-4 District.
You do not have to participate in the 1:1 device project to receive a hot spot though priority will be given to 1:1 students.

The Internet has drastically changed the way that we interact with the world. People have access to in-depth knowledge, tools to express their creativity, and people from all over the world. Yet along with offering a fascinating, new way to connect with the world, the Internet also offers new risks such as:     

  • Cyber-bullying
  • Exposure to inappropriate material
  • Online predators
  • Revealing too much personal information

Learning to recognize the warning signs of these risks will allow trusted adults to intervene and lessen potential negative impacts.
