WiFi for Personal Devices WiFi for Personal Devices
I appreciate everyone's patience as we retool our WiFi systems in the district.  While open and free wifi is great, there are many laws and regulations which are in place for everyone's safety.  These laws also affect portions of school funding, so ensuring that everyone follows those rules is paramount to maintaining our network.  If you are a student that would like to use a personal device on the school wifi, please complete this Form.  The district guest WiFi is on during weekends and from 3pm - 7am, weekdays.  The WiFi SSID for personal devices is "IPride".  Once your device information is loaded in the system, you will be able to connect to "IPride" without a password.  As a reminder, it is against BOE policy and the district AUP to connect personal devices to "ILSWLAN".  Continued issues with misues of district connectivity will result in less opportunity to connect personal devices.
Independence High School Students Excel at Ohio Music Educators Association Contest
The Ohio Music Educators Association Solo and Ensemble Contest is a contest in which young musicians perform art songs for ratings based on pitch, intonation, balance, interpretation, tone quality and accuracy. It is a terrific opportunity for IHS students to work on their small group and individual musicianship and receive invaluable comments from a variety of adjudicators! The discipline learned through this experience is something that serves the students as they grow musically. Performances are rated on a scale of I - V, with I being the highest. Performances are separated by Class, A - C, with A being the most challenging.
