Ann Arbor Public Schools Accessible Wireless Networks

You may have noticed different wireless networks popping up in your devices. AAPS has updated our wireless networks to better manage bandwidth and prioritize educational use. Below are the descriptions and targets for each of the new wireless networks.


AAPS – Will be used by district-owned devices and will replace the AAPSWF network over time.


AAPS-Guest - Replaces AAPS-GUEST
  • Accessing the Guest network requires use of an AAPS Active Directory account. Every staff member and student has an account.

  • Staff or students using “Bring Your Own Technology” (BYOT) in class need to enter their Active Directory Login/Password and accept the Use Agreement to access this network
  • This is the same ID used to access the server space

AAPS-Public - Replaces AAPS-Vendor and is for visitors, parents and community members.
  • Users must provide their email address and accept the Use Agreement to access this network. The set up is similar to the screens you see when visiting a network at a hotel or coffee shop.
  • The email does not have to be an aaps.k12.mi.us email address

These networks will require students to re-authenticate to the network after a period of two hours, similar to a hotel or coffee shop.

WIFI Access Directions for Students and Staff


Accessing the Guest Network as a Student:
Use the portion of your AAPS email address before the '@' as your username.

How Can a Teacher Look Up a Student’s Email Address?

  1. Click on Reports in the left hand navigation
  2. Use the Pull Down Menu and select the report: “DST Class List w GooglePermission”
