From Fort Worth ISD

The Fort Worth ISD is asking all students to reset their online District password as distance learning becomes more important than ever before.

This one-page information sheet will guide you through the password change, step-by-step. http://www.fwisd.org/studentpasswords

The process will take about ten minutes – and will ensure secure access to the District’s online academic resources. Students will need to use a device other than their Chromebook to make the change – like a laptop, an iPad, or even your Smartphone. Once a new password is established, they will be able to utilize their District-issued Chromebook.

If you run into problems, you can call us at the HELP desk for assistance at 817-814-8378.

Fort Worth ISD has been in constant contact with our collegiate partners as they make their own adjustments to meet the needs of our students. The following information applies to teachers and students in: Tarrant County College Dual Credit (TCC), TCC Early College High Schools, Texas Wesleyan Early College High School (Dunbar), and University of Texas at Austin – OnRamps.
