ChromeOS Devices Will Require FISD WiFi When On-Campus

Posted by Howard Carlin on 1/24/2023 4:30:00 PM

Beginning February 1st, Forney ISD chromeOS devices will give strong preferential behaviour to the Forney ISD WiFi network. This means that if a Forney ISD device is in range of the FISD WiFi, it will not allow users to switch to a different network, including a personal hotspot. Once the device leaves campus, or in the event the FISD network is down, the device will be allowed to connect to other networks.

The reason for this change is that it effectively stops the use of personal hotspots in our schools and ensures that students and staff are always operating inside the safety constraints of our network web-filtering.
