permissions as if you are on a school

is still monitored, as it is on a regular
● By logging into the network, students
confirm they accept the terms and conditions
of the GCPS RUP (Responsible Use Policy).
● Users agree to uphold the contents of the
RUP as well as the Student Code of Conduct

on school property.
*Failure to follow conduct code will result in restricted access

users connected to the GCPS

computer and MYeClass!
(If you HAVE NOT reset your password this school year (either on MYeClass or
school computer), then you must do this before accessing wireless.)
Once you are authenticated, you will receive
filtered access to the Internet under RUP

What can I use my device for?
Class Projects and Assignments
The student portal – course pages,
online research library, grades, etc.
Teacher led assessments
… and more!
Access will be filtered, so if a site is
blocked on a school computer, it will
be blocked on the wireless network.
The Student Portal and BYOD
Remember: Your username and password for the portal = your username and password
for a school computer.
In the student portal, you can find:
-Teacher course pages
-Online Research Library
-Other useful tools (Classworks, Atlas, etc.)
Will I be able to charge my device
Presently, no facilities are dedicated to
charging personal devices, with a limited
number of outlets available in any given
space. Students should
make it a point to charge
their technology prior to
coming to school each day.
What do I do if my device is
damaged or stolen?
● Even though you are TOTALLY responsible
for keeping your personal device safe and
secure, any time there is theft or damage,
you should notify your teacher or the
administration. GCPS is not liable or
responsible for any theft, damage, or loss of
any non-district device or the information on
any such device.
I have a data plan from an outside
provider on my device that allows
Internet access without the GCPS
network. Is this allowable?
● BYOD is the ONLY allowable network on
personal devices. Students should not access
the Internet through any cellular data
provider while on school premises.
What if I can’t get my device
working on BYOD?
● GCPS employees are not permitted to
touch student devices and are not trained to
troubleshoot the many types of personal
devices that students may bring.
● Refer to your owner’s manual, the internet,
or a peer with the same device to help you
When Can I Use My Device?
● Remember devices can only be used for educational
● You may use your device when your teacher says you
can. Your teacher may use signs such as these:
