Software/Apps Approved by the District

SAISD maintains a list of approved software applications and websites.  These applications/websites have been evaluated and vetted.  The list allows multiple search options to help find a software/website, by title, description, category, content, compatible device, license and date approved.  If you do not find your software/website, please submit a Software Approval request, through the new Technology Support Portal - https://saisd-support.saasit.com/.

  • When a new software approval request is received the following process occurs.
  • Instructional requests are reviewed/approved, by the appropriate content leadership, and department requests by Information Technology.
  • The request is evaluated by the Software committee and a decision is made to approve or deny.  Information Technology focuses on
    • Security check for the network and firewall,
    • Operation on the various operating systems,
    • Data requirement by the vendor, and
    • Data privacy and/or confidentiality agreement with the vendor.
  • The customer receives an email notification.  If the request is approved, the customer can proceed with the purchase and/or request a software install through the Technology Support Portal.

If you have any questions on the software approval process, please contact Maria Gonzalez, mgonzalez@saisd.net or Sylvia Orta, sorta@saisd.net.
