Any device owned by the school district as well as gaming devices (such as Nintendo DS, Sony PSP), printers, media streaming and storage devices (such as Apple TV and Roku) and other devices that could be considered “servers” or “routers.” You may not share this network with any other device.

Network Privileges
Your level of access to the network is determined by your login used to connect to the wireless network. Your actions and Internet use will be logged just as if you were on a district-owned computer. For security purposes, some district resources may not be available to a personally owned device.

Longview ISD cannot guarantee the electronic security of your device while it is connected to our network. Please use reasonable precautions including security or anti-virus software. You should consider this a public network.

Longview ISD, your school and your teachers are not responsible for lost or damaged personal electronic devices. You are solely responsible for the safety and security of your device.

Appropriate Times
Accepting this agreement and joining this network does not give permission to use a personal device without direct permission from a teacher, principal, or other administrator.

Getting Help
This network’s availability and usability is not guaranteed or promised in any way. If you are having trouble joining the network, please refer to your device’s documentation or owner’s manual.
