WiFi Setup for Personal Devices
The District is currently providing access to the WiFi infrastructure for staff members.The links below provide guidance for connecting your personal device to the District WiFi Network.The most important step in the process for all devices is inputting your network ID in the proper format. When prompted to sign into the system, use your District network/email ID in the following format: mccsd\first initial+Last NameFor example if your name is John Smith you would use:Username: mccsd\jsmithPassword: YourEmailPassword*Also note that the slash between mccsd and your username is a backslash, not a forward slash. On most mobile devices, you can access the backslash through one of the alternate keyboards, or by holding down on the forward slash and selecting the backslash.**As a reminder, if you have connected your personal device (cell phone) to MCCSD-Personal Wi-Fi, you will need to re-establish the connection using your new password. To do this, go to the Wi-Fi settings on your device, "Forget" the connection to MCCSD-Personal , and then re-connect using your new password. Failure to do this will result in your device continually trying to connect to
Wi-Fi, resulting in your account getting locked out.
