District 11 New Wireless Deployment Guide

As part of Network Services’ commitment to providing secure and reliable wireless access for our staff, students and guests, we will soon be introducing several new changes.


Please note, these changes will affect District 11 wireless networks only. All wired connections are unaffected and will continue working as expected.


Two New Wireless Networks
 

D11-Secure

 

This is the new primary network to which all staff, students and guests will connect. It will gradually replace our current networks, D11_DATA, D11PersonalDevices, and D11_GUEST entirely.

 

D11-IoT

 

This network is intended for current and future smart devices that are proliferating throughout the district. Examples include ViewSonic ViewBoards and Airtame casting devices.


How to Connect


All District 11 staff, students and guests will connect to D11-Secure. The only difference will depend on whether the device you are using is district provided or personal.


District provided


All Windows and macOS laptops as well as Chromebooks, iPads and iPhones and Android phones will be updated to connect automatically. You do not need to do anything and the device does not need to leave your hands, though it does need to be on-premises to update.


Personal


Select the D11-Secure wireless network on your device and enter your District 11 username and password to connect. You will need to “trust” a certificate issued by Colorado Springs School District 11 which establishes a secure connection in the same way your browser connects securely to online banking sites. Guests will enter guest account credentials provided to them.


All smart devices in classrooms, common areas and conference rooms will be connected to D11-IoT by district school-based and field technicians.
