We have a new & improved WiFi network! Check out these details to stay connected.

Our IT team has upgraded our WiFi network to help keep the District’s info more secure. Plus, they’ve made it a whole lot easier to log in! This fall, the old MCS_WLAN network will be shut off, so log onto the new SCS_WLAN network so you don’t lose access. The same network security provisions apply, such as restrictions on sites hosted outside the U.S., but here's a big plus – you no longer have to keep up with a separate password for WiFi! Just use your Active Directory ID, which is the same username and password as your email. So

It's simple to log in:
  1. Select “SCS_WLAN” from the available networks in your device’s WiFi settings.
  2. Log in with your Active Directory ID.
  3. The first time you log in on a device, you will be asked to trust the certificate. Once you do, you won't be asked again.

*If you’re a Mac user, there is one extra step. After completing the three steps above, you will see another pop-up window asking for a username and password. For this, you will enter the password for your actual device, not your email password. Once you do, you won’t see the popup again.
Need help? Call the IT Help Desk at 416-2700.
