  • iBoss Connection

    After connecting to MCS Wi-Fi if you are not prompted to enter your username and password right away then you will need to go to the Internet Browser on the device and log into iBoss. iBoss will need to be logged in for each time a user handles the device such as student devices. Once you login to iBoss you will need to keep the iBoss webpage up and not close out of it. You can open a new tab to go to a website. If iBoss login does not appear you can find it at this web address: http://iboss1.monet.k12.ca.us:7/
