School District No. 83 (North Okanagan-Shuswap)

Student use of wifi

The school district has phased in wireless (wi-fi) technology in the schools.

In keeping with the directions being set by the Ministry of Education, the district supports the use of information technology for educational purposes and believes that, if used effectively, it is a means to improve student learning. Therefore,  wi-fi will be available for students to access. Prior to gaining access to the wireless network,  both a parent and the student will be required to agree to the School District 83 Digital Citizenship policy, which ensures all users are aware of their responsibilities for acceptable use of district networks and gives guidelines for the use of electronic personal devices connecting to the district network.

This process will be done on-line through the district’s website (via Parent Connect and Student Connect. This will need to be completed on an annual basis.

Still have questions? Please contact your child’s school principal and she/he will be happy to help.
