CISCO VoIP Phones
Voice over Internet Protocol, or VoIP, phones were installed across the district beginning in 2010 as part of the installation of a Unified Communications System. These phones allow calls to be made across an IP network. With the new telephone system, the telephones stay at the installed location, but the phone number travels with the individual. If an employee is teaching at Como Sr. and moves to Central Sr. the next school year, the phone will remain at Como, but the phone number will move to Central with the employee.
In District Calls -- Use 5 digit calling
When placing a call from a VoIP phone to any other phone number inside SPPS, please dial the last five digits of the phone number you are calling. These calls stay inside of the SPPS network, and save the district money. For example, when calling the Service Desk, dial 3-4357 instead of 603-4357.
Local Calls -- Dial 9 + the seven digit phone number
When placing a call outside of SPPS, please dial 9 plus the phone number. Dialing 9 is necessary to access an outside line.
