WiFi Connection Flow Chart

***Most recent update: There was an issue with the VPN, an app called Global Protect. The District is working on getting the app fixed with the developer. Many students were not able to connect to their teachers nor their Zoom meetings. There were four updates to the app and will need to be updated by students. Zoom also will need to be updated. If students go into the App Catalog for LAUSD and go to both apps they will need to click the button that says "Installed" and click the pop up that says "Install" for both Zoom and Global protect. Additionally, iPads may need to be updated to by checking for a software update in the settings. Further updates will be coming soon.***
