How to Connect a Personal Device to the St. Vrain Valley School District Mobile Device Management System

The following instructions are for connecting a personally-owned device to the St. Vrain Valley School District Mobile Device Management System (MDM). DO NOT attempt this with a district-owned device.

Students may elect to bring their own device (BYOD) in lieu of receiving a district device. The BYOD must be the same model as the district device and capable of running the latest operating system. Connecting a personal BYOD to our MDM allows access to apps and other district resources at no cost. BYOD devices enrolled in the MDM will be managed under the same restrictions as district owned devices.

BYOD users who opt out of enrolling into the MDM will be responsible for the cost of any apps or resources needed. Access to certain district resources may be limited or unavailable.

1. If in a district building, connect to svvsd Wi-Fi network.

Note: Enrollment can be completed on any network. If connected to another Wi-Fi network besides the svvsd Wi-Fi network, skip to step two (2).
