Depending on if your device is Windows or Mac, district-owned or personal, there are different networks your device will connect to. Attempting to connect to the wrong network could cause problems accessing district resources such as network drives, printers, and more.
The district runs multiple wireless networks in our buildings. District-owned devices automatically connect to the appropriate network:
|PantherWiFi||District-owned Apple devices (Macs, iPads, et al.)|
|PantherSecure||District-owned Windows laptops only|
|PantherGuest||Personally-owned laptops, smartphones, and tablets|
|PantherWiFi_Computer||District-owned Macs at Centerview Elementary|
|PantherWiFi_Mobile||District-owned iPads at Centerview Elementary|
District-owned Windows laptops only at Centerview Elementary
There is a certain file you need to download to allow access to certain SSL-secured sites.
Why am I getting security certificate warnings on the school?
The school district is required to filter Internet traffic. With many sites, including most common search engines and other popular sites, utilizing HTTPS/SSL technology it became necessary to implement this new scanning technology. This technology requires that a specific certificate be installed on your computer, tablet, phone or other personal device to allow web browsing without this scanning error.
How can I preventing security certificate warnings?
To prevent security certificate warnings on the school district network, including the guest network, you must import the appropriate scanning certificate into your browser. In some cases, the certificate must be imported into each specific browser independently. See below for instructions on how to import the certificate for your browser.

Sometimes you need an iPad to no longer connect to a wireless network. By default, it will save the network after connecting to it once in a list of preferred wireless networks. If you have multiple preferred networks, however, this can cause your iPad to switch back and forth between them, leading to connectivity issues.
- Tap on the Settings app from the home screen.
- Tap on Wi-Fi. The list of local wireless networks will appear.
