Tech Support

STEP 1 - Utilize Ohana Help Desk for basic support or troubleshooting

Do you need help with your device or software? Something not working? Not sure how to connect? Or have other questions? For general tech support, please contact the Ohana Help Desk, a new resource from the Hawaii Department of Education to support our public school students and parents across the state as they engage in distance learning opportunities.

Help desk agents are available to assist you with your technology questions and issues as you go through your online classes and lessons. Support is also available in the most commonly spoken languages in our family homes.

There are also self-service supports through the Ohana Help Desk portal, such as tip sheets, videos, and links to other online resources which are available 24 x 7.
