Wireless devices are broken up into two categories: District-Owned Devices and Personal Devices. In this article, Personal Devices are those not-purchased or owned by the District.
Wireless connectivity for district-owned devices, including Windows laptops, Chromebooks, Macbooks and iPads, is maintained by the Technology department. All District owned devices are configured to connect to a wireless network.
- Windows devices = BSD-PKI
- Apple & Chromebook = BSD-Devices
Changing or editing the auto-connect network on your device (Besides the BSD-Guest) while on any Boise Schools campus may render your device unusable until IT staff can reconfigure.
If any district-owned device is not connecting to the appropriate wireless, please submit a help desk ticket or call help desk 208-854-6670.
