PLE Tech Update - Access Issues

Access to Instructional Materials and Google Meets

Please make sure that your child is accessing all learning materials using their DCSD Username and password.  This is critically important to help us ensure the safety of all of our students.  We will no longer be accepting any non-DCSD accounts or personal accounts into Google Meets that are for instruction.  Additionally, this will help with accessing any electronic materials.  

Your child’s username and password follow this format: 

Username: Lastname(first initial)(middle initial)  -

Password: Dcsd(6 digit lunch number)

  • Example: Dcsd234432

This information can be found in Parent Portal or you could contact your child’s teacher.  Please help us ensure that all of our students are using only the DCSD Domain to access instruction.  

Practice. Practice. Practice.

These platforms will be considered our “Virtual Classrooms.”
