Remote Access (aka Remote Desktop)

Remote Access

Members of the Fair Lawn Public Schools' STAFF and LEA1450 domains can access their My Documents folder from a remote location (i.e. from home), but you must be "authorized" to access the system.

Please send an email (NOT AN ETICKET) to David Blackowski, Fair Lawn Tech Dept. System Analyst  (dblackowski@fairlawnschools.org) to request access to the Remote Desktop.  You should have a response within a week (responses are not automated).

There are 2 ways to access the remote desktop (once authorized):

If using a wireless device IN SCHOOL, you can install a free app called RDP Lite (click for more details).

Use the Remote Desktop access directions below (works well when home, or somewhere out of district)

To access the Remote Desktop:

Open Internet Explorer (not compatible with other browsers)

Type:  ts.fairlawnschools.org in the URL address box at the top of the page

             NOTE:  there is no http or www preceding the web address

Click CONNECT

Enter your network USER NAME and PASSWORD

Make sure the domain is correct (staff); it should NOT be "Local Computer"
