Blackboard Parent View Accounts
Parents can create their own account for FCPS 24-7 Learning (Blackboard). After completing this one time registration and having your account validated at school, you will have your own username and password to access all of your children's available courses, even if they attend different schools. You will also be able to update your children's emergency information through weCare@school. Updating weCare@school with the correct email address will ensure better communication via Keep in Touch. To register for an account go to http://fcps.blackboard.com Under the login boxes you will see a link to Parent Information. That link will take you to step-by-step instructions "Creating a New Parent View Account and First Time Login." Parents needing assistance with their already registered and validated accounts should complete the online Parent View Support Request ticket at the following link, http://itweb.fcps.edu/ParentView/
It’s that time of year when the PTA helps you shop for school supplies for the 2014-15 school year by buying a school supply pack. Be sure to visit www.cpespta.org for more information.
Devices no longer need to be registered each school year. The Acceptable Use Policy of the Student Rights and Responsibilities Handbook now includes permission for BYOD. Please see Mr. Decroo, in room 108, for assistance connecting to the wireless network..
