Internet and Wi Fi Resources
During these unprecedented times and the possible personal challenges with accessing the internet, EASD is providing a list of internet/WiFi resources to you. This may make it easier for you to stay connected and access EASD's remote learning opportunities.
Guest Wi-Fi can be accessed on any EASD school campus. Signal strength and accessibility are dependent upon location on each campus and proximity to the school. Please select the EASD-BYOD network for free Wi-Fi. If you are unable to access the EASD-BYOD Wi-Fi, please try another spot on the campus. Please note that any EASD devices will connect automatically.
