BELTON, TX — In an effort to provide the Big Red Community with expanded WiFi during the COVID-19 school closure, Belton ISD has invested in additional technology infrastructure to support external-facing wireless access points that cover immediate parking areas around five campuses.

This means that anyone in the Big Red Community who needs to access the internet can park near one of these campuses and get connectivity while still observing social distancing. Some nearby homes may also be able to access our WiFi networks inside their homes.

The campuses with the enhanced WiFi points include Belton High School, Lake Belton Middle School, South Belton Middle School, North Belton Middle School and Miller Heights Elementary School.

“When the decision to close school was made, we knew it was important to continue looking for ways to provide WiFi connectivity to our students and families,” said Michael Morgan, Assistant Superintendent of Student Services. “Technology can help us all stay connected, and now more than ever we want to make sure our families know Belton ISD is here for them.”

BISD-issued devices should connect to the WiFi automatically. Non-BISD devices can connect through the district’s Guest WiFi (password: guestbisd).

Technical help is available to students and families by contacting the Belton ISD Technology Help Desk. Families and students can reach the Help Desk from 7:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m., Monday-Friday at or (254) 215-4357.
