Accessing Blackboard: There has been some confusion regarding how new students to Woodson access their Blackboard accounts. The username is still the student ID number of the student, however, their student ID numbers are no longer the password which was used to access their Blackboard accounts for the first time. If students are having difficulty logging into their Blackboard account, they should let one of their teachers know immediately! If your child is a new student to using Blackboard and/or a new student to FCPS, one of their teachers will need to reset their password before they can access the account for the first time. Once the student accesses the account using the password the teacher assigned them, they will then need to manually change the password to a word of their choice using the “Personal Information” link on their home page (if the student used their own choice of password with the teacher initially to reset the account, they will not need to change it again). Former students who were at Woodson last year and even at Frost should use the password from last year (they will then be prompted to change their password)…quite a few students may forget their former password so their passwords will need to be reset. Former students who cannot log into their Blackboard accounts will also need to ask a teacher to reset their password.
