How-to Update eduphoria! Profile


The first time you log into eduphoria! after August 12, you will be prompted to update your profile. It is very important that your name, email, campus, and other information are correct in the system.


Phone Messages
As you return to your campus from summer break, please make sure all phone messages reflect current information concerning days off and returning dates for your campus or department.

Campus principals need to make sure that the main campus voice mail message reflects pertinent information for your campus.

Beginning Aug. 7, BISD is moving to a new voicemail system called Microsoft Exchange Unified Messaging. This will integrate both voice mail and email accounts, which will enable staff to check their email or voice mail through the phone or Outlook. 

Staff will receive an email that has their phone extension and temporary PIN number. They MUST keep this information available in order to setup their account through the phone.
