Get Connected - BYOT at Irving

Bring Your Own Tech.  To connect to the Fairfax wifi, you will need to connect using our FCPSOnBoard system. Each device is different. Check our  For Students page under get connected for all the instructions for your specific computing device. Keep in mind you will need your network password before beginning the process.  Once you are connected, the connection will be good for the whole school year.

 

We encourage students to bring their own technology. The benefits of using technology they are familiar with and can access outside of the classroom is an important aspect of the FCPS Portrait of a Graduate. Please see the links below to learn more.
