Gmail (District Email)
If you are a new employee and need access to email, please look for a new employee welcome message with information within a few days of being hired. If you don't receive this message, please contact your supervisor or principal.
The best place to get help with your Gmail or any of the Google Apps is through the Google Apps Help. This can be accessed either through your Gmail account or through a Google search.
To access the help through your Google Account select the Help link at the top right hand side of the Google mail screen.
Open Source Software
We are strong supporters of OpenSource and free software. You might wonder, "What is OpenSource software". In the most simplest of terms its free software . . . yes, we said free! It has a much greater purpose than that though.
Open-source software (OSS) is computer software that is available in source code form for which the source code and certain other rights normally reserved for copyright holders are provided under a software license that permits users to study, change, improve and at times also to distribute the software. Some open source licenses meet the requirements of the Open Source Definition. Some open source software is available within the public domain. Open source software is very often developed in a public, collaborative manner.

UTIPS provides a low cost internet-based formative assessment engine for teachers in the state of Utah that will allow them to adjust their classroom instruction to improve student competencies in CORE areas prior to end of level CRT testing.
WCSD Technology has created some help videos listed below. Additional help for UTIPS can be found by accessing the Tutorial link at the bottom of the UTIPS home page.
Wireless Network (WiFi)
To connect to the Guest Wifi (as of 5/2020):
- Create an account at https://guest.washk12.org. Your account info will be sent to you via text.
- Connect to the WCSDaccess network using the account you created. You shouldn't need to do step 1 again, as the system will remember you.
Guests From Other Institutions (eduroam)
Washington County School District is part of the thousands of public and private institutions across the world who are part of eduroam. If your institution is part of eduroam, you can log into district wifi at any district location by connecting to the eduroam network as usual. If you've connected before at another eduroam participant, this will likely happen automatically.
If you are a WCSD employee at another institution with the eduroam network (look for "eduroam" in your wifi list), you can sign in with your full district email address and password.
Employee and Student Wifi
For students connecting personal devices, and employees connecting personal devices or individually assigned district devices, connect to WCSDaccess with your regular district username (email before the @) and password.
For district-owned devices that are not assigned to an individual, please contact your tech to have the device connected to WCSDlabs.
Do not connect to WCSDsignon. If you do so, your device may remember this network and have trouble reconnecting. If you've connected to WCSDsignon, please disconnect from the network. Instructions on doing this will vary. If you need help, please contact your location's tech.
