Frequently Asked Questions and Answers

Question: Is it required to enter a username and password?

Question: Can I use DISD-BYOD on an Android and iPhone?
Answer:  Yes, instructions can be found for both on the Duncanville ISD Student website.

 

Question: Why does my device show that I have access to the Wifi, but my “cellular strength” icon is low?
Answer:  Mobile devices connect via cellular technology through the use of cellular towers. You might notice that there is a Sprint cellular tower in the parking lot of Duncanville High School. Sprint users will have a higher signal strength than AT&T, T-Mobile and Verizon because the towers for these particular providers are much further away than the Sprint tower. The District is looking at solutions to increase or “boost” cellular strength in specific locations.
