8Microsoft® System Center 2012 Software Center & Application Catalog If any application you select to install requires approval due to limited licensing, a notification is sent to the SCCM Administrators. The SCCM Administrators will then contact the appropriate department head for approval of the install. You will be notified if approved or denied. If approved, you will then have the ability to install the application.This is the new process for installing applications within the district. Meaning, if you submit an Eduphoria work order requesting your adobe flash to be updated for example, the work order will be closed and you will be directed to the SCCM Application Catalog for fresh installs and updates. This will also apply to those who receive a new computer for example. You will have the ability now to choose what applications you want installed on your computer, as we all know not everyone uses every application that the district provides.Any questions regarding SCCM?
9LISD WiFi/BYODDue to the changes in WiFi for staff, a new RUP was created and all staff members are required to sign the updated version.BYOD for staff: You know are officially invited to bring your personal devices to use on the LISD network. The only restriction is that all personal devices will be used on the LISDPROD network ONLY. Staff will no longer have their devices on LISDSEC. LISDSEC is now reserved for student devices only.The key differences are that LISDPROD is completely unfiltered Internet access and devices will be secluded from the rest of the network for improved network security. What seclusion means, is that you will not be allowed to access server shares or network shares with personal devices to protect the network from accidental transfer of viruses, malware, spyware, etc.Staff devices found on LISDSEC will be blocked from the wireless network.
10LISD WiFi/BYODThe process for connecting your personal device to LISDPROD is by accessing the Zero-IT Activation link: https:// /activate.If you already have your personal device on LISDSEC, you only need to access this link from a Web browser.

Meaning, you must know how to use your device and know how to connect to WiFi networks on your own.
