Student Login Issues FAQ

How do I log in to my district-issued device?

Answer: The first time you login to your SJSD laptop, you must either be using the SJSD wifi at one of the district buildings or first connect to the wifi provided by your location (at home or otherwise), using the appropriate login username and password for that wifi server. Once you have logged on and have internet access, you may proceed to login to the device.

How do I get access to my class schedule, grades, etc.?

Answer: The school district provides PowerSchool access to students so they can access their class schedule, progress grades, and other information. If you did not receive your login information from your counselor via email to your school email address, please call 671-4080 or send email to Mrs. Hoppe at meganhoppe@sjsd.k12.mo.us; please send the message from your SCHOOL EMAIL ACCOUNT for security reasons.

Can I still access Google Mail, Classroom, Drive, Etc.?

Answer: Students' district email has been moved to Microsoft Office this year rather than Google Mail. Students will no longer be able to login to Google Mail to send and receive messages; however, they will be able to use their new account to participate in Google Classroom and store content on Google Drive.

What is Microsoft Teams and how do I get access to it?

Answer: Microsoft Teams is one of the alternatives that teachers are using for remote learning at Central until our building opens in late September. It is a collaboration platform that allows teachers to chat with students as well as host meetings with video and audio support. The app is not installed on student devices by default; however, there is a web-based version of the app that can be utilized. Once at the website, simply click on "Use the web app instead" at the bottom of the screen.
