  • Student personal devices are not permitted to connect to district Wi-Fi.







Staff

  • All district-issued Wi-Fi enabled staff devices are pre-configured for Wi-Fi access. 
  • Staff personal devices can access district Wi-Fi through the Staff BYOD Access which requires authentication with staff username and password.  Follow this link for instructions.






Guests

  • Guests to the district can access district Wi-Fi through a Guest Login.  See instructions here for obtaining a Guest Wi-Fi pass in advance.
