Connecting to CUSD Wireless

CUSD Wireless


In an effort to continue to provide a robust and secure wireless environment, TIS has made a few changes that we would like to bring you up to speed on. Currently you will find the following wireless networks available to connect to –


CAPOUSD – District owned devices, BYOD devices, and true guest1 devices connect here. If prompted on a BYOD device, please use your CUSD username and password to connect. Visit to upgrade your web experience to staff web-browsing levels. For true guest access see the instructions below.




Additional Wireless Information



  • All devices will connect to this wireless network. This includes District owned devices, BYOD devices, and true guest1 devices.
    • District owned devices will connect to this wireless network automatically and without any additional steps.
    • If this is the first time you are connecting to this network on a BYOD device, you will be asked to provide your username and password. This username and password will be the same as what you would use to login to your District machine.
    • True guest1 users will need to request the current guest username and password from the front office staff. Office staff can find the current true guest password at or by visiting MyCUSD and clicking on “Guest Wireless Password”. Guest passwords are changed each week.

1 What is “true guest”? A true guest user is someone who does not have a CUSD provided username and password (e.g. a vendor, a parent or individual presenting on-site, and any non-employee who needs internet access for District related business).



  • This wireless network is available to legacy devices such as District owned iPads that have not yet been configured by TIS to connect to the CAPOUSD wireless network.
    • In coming weeks TIS will be re-configuring District owned legacy devices to use the CAPOUSD wireless network.
    • The CUSD wireless network will be removed on 10/31/16.
      • IMPORTANT NOTE: BYOD devices that are connecting to the CUSD wireless network should be re-configured to connect to the CAPOUSD wireless network as soon as possible.

What will happen if I leave my BYOD device on the CUSD wireless network?


When the CUSD and CUSDSTU wireless networks are removed, any devices still configured to connect to them will be unable to access the internet or network.


What are the benefits of clicking on override and logging in?


Internet access on the Capistrano Unified School District network is determined by who is logged in to the machine or device. Without knowing who is using a device, we provide the lowest tier (i.e. most restricted) internet experience. Once you let us know who you are, you will find an internet experience tailored for you.
