Campus Technology Access

Campus Technology Access, also referred to as CTA, is internet access for staff and student owned devices (cell phones, iPads, and tablets) through the Parkway network.

Our network and telcom teams worked hard over the summer upgrading our wireless infrastructure, in preparation for CTA. We are currently piloting CTA with ALL district staff, as well as students at Central Middle and North High. We have had a few bumps in the road with these pilot schools but look forward to bringing on more student personal devices later this fall!

You can find a PDF of the CTA guide by clicking here.
