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.
