Wi-Fi Connectivity

  • Wi-Fi Hot Spot Requests

    Waco ISD has added an additional 2,200 mobile hot spots for students to check out, bringing our total to approximately 2,700. 

    The Wi-Fi hotspot provides filtered internet access to student technology devices for instructional purposes only and complies with the Children’s Internet Protection Act (CIPA).

    Please click on the link below to request a hot spot if your household currently does not have internet access for your students to work remotely. Please know that this service is limited in availability and will require this form to be completed.   

    Within 48 hours of the initial request, a T-Mobile internet device will be checked out to a student and brought to the campus for deployment. The campus will contact the student’s family to set up a convenient time for pick up.
