MIS stands for Managed Internet Services. Every Staff and Student member of Education Queensland has a unique MIS username and password that is used to access a variety of online resources provided by the department.
A MIS username is made up of the first initial your surname, followed by the first four letters of your surname, followed by a number. For example, Mark Smith may have the MIS username of msmit44.
All students will use their MIS ID on a daily basis – it's how they login to the school computers, access the internet on their BYOD device and it identifies them for a number of school-based activities. The MIS ID also makes up your student's email address. For example, the Mark Smith from above would have the email address firstname.lastname@example.org.
Knowledge of both your student's MIS ID and their email address is imperative to the completion of the tasks below.
At Elanora State High School, The HUB staff have the ability to reset all student accounts and set up passwords. Any student having difficulty with their MIS accounts need to come to the HUB during break times for assistance in re-activating their accounts.
If your child is still at primary school, you will need to contact that school to have passwords reset.

All Queensland state school staff and students can now download multiple free copies of the latest Microsoft Office to their personal home computers and mobile devices.
Students and staff will need to use their school email address to sign in. Students who don’t have a school login, school email account and password should contact their school's Managed Internet Service (MIS) administrator or class teacher. The administrator will help students activate their school login.
Microsoft Office 2016 is available for personal devices only, not devices owned by the department or part of a school network. Errors and conflicts will occur if Office 2016 is downloaded on departmental devices, as these devices already have a licenced copy of Microsoft Office.
Your Office subscription lasts for as long as you’re a Queensland state school student or school-based staff member.
