How do I get free internet through Spectrum?
You can get free internet through Spectrum if you have K-12 and/or college students living in your house and you're a new Spectrum customer. Installation is always free! Visit Spectrum's website for more details.
My internet provider is AT&T, why can't I connect the school's device (laptop and iPad) to our WiFi?
Currently we are experiencing problems with our devices connecting to AT&T routers and hotspots. At this time we don't have a fix, BOCES is working on this problem. You can connect to the school's network at the High School or at Lincoln School, see above for more information.
Google Meet, how do I use it?
Here is a great website to learn everything about Google Meet!
My laptop is broken to the point I can't access school material.
IT will be available every Wednesday from 12-2 at the High School. Please make an appointment with IT.
My laptop won't connect to the internet outside of school.
Please follow the Offsite Login directions. After following these directions and you are still not connected to the internet, please fill out this Form to notify IT of the problem. Our IT Department is working to get this problem resolved.
I have a new laptop that I haven't fully setup, how do I set it up?
The first time you log into a laptop, you need to be connected to the school's network. If you haven't logged into the laptop yet, please drive, and stay in your car, to the High School or Lincoln School (details below). If you have already logged into your laptop you can follow these directions to get it fully setup.
My time and date are incorrect, how do I fix it?
Please go to one of the access points located at the High School lower parking lot or at Lincoln School's parking lot and connect to the school's WiFi. The laptop must be connected back to the school's network to get this fixed. You can do this while staying in your car. Click the search bar at the bottom left of your computer and type the following
*There is a space between the 'gpupdate' and '/force/
and press Enter. If this update doesn't correctly adjust the date/time go to the #NCSDLearns folder in the Start menu and select Time Settings and change the date/time.
I'm trying to log into my laptop but I'm receiving the message, "We can't sign you in with this credential because your domain isn't available."
Your child has never signed into this laptop at school. Please go to the HS student parking lot (first parking lot on the left when entering from Peirson Ave) or to the Lincoln School parking lot and connect to the WiFi. WiFi access points have been installed so you can connect to the school's network without leaving your car. Once connected, log into the laptop and wait for it to fully load. Now you will be able to log into the laptop anywhere.
I lost my charger, how do I get a new one?
At this time the IT Department does not have access to give out new chargers. We recommend purchasing one of these chargers. We have also found the Ninetendo Switch chargers work with school-issued laptops.
My iPad won't connect to the internet outside of school.
Please follow these directions. If the Mobile Login app has not appeared, please continue to keep the iPad connected to your WiFi.
The Mobile Login app (jeep picture) has not appeared on the iPad.
Please keep the iPad connected to your WiFi and wait for the Mobile Login app to appear. It may take awhile for it to appear. After it appears, follow these directions.
