Why can't I access YouTube or other sites on my Chromebook at school?

If a site that you can normally access as a teacher, such as YouTube, shows the block screen or the annoying "This site can't be reached" error page when you on the district network:
  1. Open the BPSD bookmark group in your Chrome browser and click the Lightspeed Web Filter link. 
  2. Enter your district username and password. (The username does NOT include @bps-ok.org or @stu.bps-ok.org.) 
  3. You should be able to access the usual sites for at least 30 minutes. 
For your reference, the login address is: lsaccess.me/login

We hope to get the “Lightspeed User Agent” extension already installed on our Chromebooks to authenticate with Google to avoid this issue, but we haven’t licked that problem yet.
