Tech Resources for Remote Learning

Prepare for Remote Learning

Get Internet access

Your student may need Internet access to participate in remote learning classroom activities. For help on choosing an Internet service provider or using your mobile device as a hotspot, read Getting Connected to the Internet. [ English  |  Chinese  |  Spanish ]

Know how to use your device

Students can use any personal device that can connect to the Internet to access CPS remote learning materials and participate in classroom activities. Chrome and Safari web browsers are recommended for accessing CPS web resources.

For students who have received a CPS-issued device, please refer to the following guidance to get started:

Access your CPS account

Students should log in to their CPS account at cps.edu/portal to access their CPS email or Google Classroom to receive classroom instructions from their teacher.

All students are issued a CPS account upon enrollment, however, students who have never logged in to their account will need to activate the account before they can access their email and other CPS applications. Students can set up this account on their own or ask their parent or guardian for help.

  • Log in to your student’s CPS account at cps.edu/portal.
  • If your student has never logged into their CPS account, they will need to activate their account. Use the login instructions to set up your account.

  • If your student has forgotten their password or needs to change their password, use the instructions for password management.

  • If you are unable to set up your student’s CPS account or change their password, please contact your school.

Teachers will let you know which tools they will be using for classroom activities. These are some of the ways in which teachers may communicate with students:
