Fast and Reliable Internet

 

   Forestburg ISD is meeting today's technology demands while preparing for the demands of the future. Our WiFi network is delivered to us over fiber optic cable from Nortex Communications in Muenster, Tx.

Our robust bandwidth of 

1 Gbps, translates to over 

5 Mbps per student--

far beyond the recommended minimum.

 



 

To put this into perspective, the current 

FCC Goal for PK-12 Education is:

FISD has 5 Mbps.

Robust Wireless Infrastructure

 

   Fast and reliable internet is important,

but it's only as good as the devices that deliver it. 

 

  WiFi router Forestburg ISD sports 30+ Ubiquiti Unify Pro AC wireless access points. These are multi-radio access points capable of delivering fast Wi-Fi over dual bands (2.4 GHz and 5.0 GHz) with speeds up to 1300 Mbps.

 

With an access point in every 

Classroom, Library, Office, Agriculture Barn and the Gym,

there's no where on campus that students are unable to connect!

 


 

True 1:1 Solution

 

   FISD uses technology to increase STAAR Scores, support curriculum, and equip our students with the 21st Century skills required by the colleges, universities, and employers of today. 

 

   Students in grades 3-12 currently use Chromebooks in the classroom.

Our goal for the 2019-20 school year is to replace all older iPads in Pre-K through 2nd Grade with Hybrid Chromebook/Tablets.

  

 



 

Chromebook and iPad carts are checked out to each teacher which means,

Every Student in Every Class 

has access to a device to facilitate

Collaboration, Research, and Creativity.

 



 

Our district fully embraces 

Google G-Suite and Google Classroom 

as a means to deliver and receive instructional materials paperlessly
