Wi-Fi and Certificate Safety Issues.

Text:

-My school uses a WiFi network that monitors students' activity for saftey/rules purposes. I really have no problem with it, and I guess I can't because I signed off on the rules.

-Anyways, last night I updated to Safari 11. This morning when I tried to log in to the WiFi, I found it worked differently. On the old Safari (Safari 10?) I would get a message that said something like "The netwoek you are connecting to may not be secure" and I would hit "Ok" and log in anyway. Today when I tried to log in, My computer said the netwrk wasn't secure, I had to hit a button to go to the login website, and (most importantly/concerning) I had to enter my computer password to "Change my Certificate of Trust".

Is my computer now in (greater) jeopardy of being compromised? Does my computer now allow access from all sites, or just from my school's WiFi? If the former is true, how can I remedy it? Any and all help is appreciated
Thanks in advance!
