Welcome to the Technology Department's website page!

The Butler Area School District has a partnership with Questeq to provide Questeq's Educational Technology Management (ETM) service, The four defined ETM functions (process, equip, staff, & manage) encompasses the entire scope required to manage technology in a K-12 environment.

The I.T. HelpDesk x4357 (for District Employees only), staffed by Questeq in Coraopolis, answers phone calls to the HelpDesk during the hours of 7:30am-4:00pm, and should be your first contact for Technology assistance.  All requests for assistance are entered and tracked by the HelpDesk system and get assigned to a Butler Area School District I.T. staff person for follow-up and resolution. District employees also have the ability to create a HelpDesk ticket directly in the system using the following link: https://butler.sherpadesk.com/home

What's new in the 2020/21 School Year?

In response to the global pandemic, the district will be providing all secondary students with a Chromebook during the beginning of school. We've also purchased technology that will assist secondary teachers with focusing students on their classwork.

We have doubled the district's internet bandwidth due to the 1:1 Chromebook initiative as well as the increased internet capacity necessary for classroom streaming.
