Wadsworth City Schools provides Wi-Fi access to staff and students who bring their own devices. This access is filtered and recorded (see privacy statement under the resources section of this page). Staff and students can connect their personal devices to either WCS-Staff or WCS-Student wireless networks. Specifically, staff can bring in any device, and students may bring in a mobile device (e.g. cell phone) if it is allowed at the student's school. Students may not bring in their own laptops (Windows, Mac, Linux) as we provide district Chromebooks for school use exclusively. Follow the directions included in the link on the right to connect your device to one of these networks.
Using this access requires a certificate to be installed on the device as well as sign in to your wadsworthschools.org google account. Personal device web traffic is not tracked or recorded while outside of the school building. You only need to install the certificate once. After installing, you may need to restart your phone/device. Open a browser on your device and sign in to your wadsworthschools.org google account to authenticate.
