Possible To Have HiveManager Deny Other DHCP Scopes?

Just had an issue at one of our high schools where a handful of Chromebooks were not connecting successfully to our wireless network.  When looking at the Chromebooks, we saw that they were getting 192.168.0.x addresses instead of the 10.x.x.x addresses from the DHCP server that runs on a Windows server at the school.  I was able to connect to the gateway address of 192.168.0.1 to see that it was a Netgear Cable/DLS router (non-wireless) and I was able to login to it with the default username and password so I disabled DHCP on it.  My question is, is there anyway in HiveManager or the AP configuration to tell the access points to ignore certain DHCP scopes or only allow a certain DHCP scope or IP address range (since we could potentially need a wireless device with a static IP address)?  We are running HiveManager 8.1r1 using an on-premise VM server and the APs are running HiveOS 8.1r2a.
