With the “School-Guests" network, you can use the district's wireless network to access the Internet while on-campus. The visitor network offers limited bandwidth that will allow you to access general sites on the Internet, including email programs. The Guests network is accessible from 5:00am to Midnight.
How do I access the Internet on the guest network?
Most devices will detect a wireless connection. Your device should prompt you to join an available network if there is a wireless connection near you. When prompted, choose the guest network. Once you choose this network and open an Internet browser, you will be prompted to accept the terms of service and abide by all District policies and procedures. You will have to accept each day you want to use our guest network.
Why am I filtered on my own device?
Student and adult filtering is a requirement of all public schools. The Children’s Internet Protection Act (CIPA) requires all network access to be filtered, regardless of the device you use to access it while in a public school. The network you are using while at school belongs to NBC and will be filtered.
We do block the following types of network traffic:
Social Media Applications
Remote Access Applications
I have a data plan from a provider (AT&T, Sprint, Verizon, etc.) on my digital device that allows Internet access without using the NBC student network. Is this allowable?
Students are expected to follow the Acceptable Use Policy when accessing the Internet through any device. Students should not access the Internet through any cellular data provider while on campus.
My personal device does not give me a prompt to choose a wireless network. What should I do?
Check the settings menu of your device to see if there is a network access icon. Select this icon and choose the guest network from the list. Be sure to consult the owner’s manual of your device to get exact directions for accessing wireless networks.
