I am changing the wireless access points for the school today.
Formerly the wireless network had been named "elktonschool" and all wireless devices should connect to that automatically.
The "NEW" Wireless network is called "GoBigBlue", and will have a new and different wireless access code.
THIS WILL REQUIRE ALL WIRELESS DEVICES TO CONNECT WITH THE NEW ACCESS CODE.
So, Monday the 6th, I will need to enter the NEW access code into all student and teacher machines that haven't gotten it, yet.
(I WILL DO THIS FOR ALL MACHINES IN THE BUILDING TODAY)
So, I will need to see all students on Monday to enter the code. Luckily, this will not take long...only about a minute to enter the new access code under "GoBigBlue". I may even go around and visit classrooms at the beginning of the day.
We are asking that only SCHOOL OWNED devices connect to the school's wireless. I know there are several staff members who connect their cell phones and ipads and other personal devices to the wireless networks currently. We will NOT connect personal devices to the school wireless from this point on.
One of the bandwidth issues we faced during the Standardized testing this fall, was that our wireless network was strained by the amount of machines accessing it. By limiting these 10, 20, 30? extraneous devices...we will lessen the load on our wireless system. (Also, there is a chance that some students had access on their phones, or ipads).
If it is a school owned iPad, or something like that...there is no problem.
Thank you for your patience and help!
