Captive Portal - Content Filter

Off-Campus Connections

Cabell County Schools uses the West Virginia Department of Education content filter to protect students from inappropriate material. When students are off-campus and connecting to a wireless network, the filter uses a Captive Portal to authenticate the user and set permissions for access to online resources. Users need to authenticate first before attempting to access online resources

On iPads, there is a link named Home Access to open the webpage to provide credentials. The shortcut for Macbooks is in Software Center. If needed, the web address for the portal is https://ls-master.k12.wv.us/lsaccess/login?id=W7EURSBWJ2WNL486PSVR4755VTM1L0SM to authenticate.
