Getting online at home
Home broadband access is the recommended way to access CSD online learning resources when not at school. Information about community resources to access broadband, including programs to assist with the cost of broadband, are posted to the CSD website.
CSD has cellular hotspots available for checkout. Please email Mr. Nguyen (DHS) or email Mr. Leonard (RMS) if you would like to check out a hotspot.
CSD Google Workspace account
Google accounts are assigned to every faculty and student.
Google Workspace Apps include Classroom, Gmail, Drive, Docs, Sheets, Slides, Calendar, and Meet.
Students use their Google Workspace account to log into their CSD Chromebook, to access LaunchPad, and to access the Infinite Campus Student Portal.
Each student's account name is their last two digits from the students' ID number (aka lunch number) plus (op to) the first four letters each of their first and last names.
For example, if Chinua Achebe were a student with ID number 98765, his account name would be firstname.lastname@example.org
Students/parents can find a student's ID number by asking a staff member for help or by following these directions.
6-12 grade students' default password is student plus their ID number. Chinua's default password would be student98765.
6-12 grade students are prompted to create a new password when they first log in.
Students can change their password at any time here
Students who have forgotten their password and need it reset can get assistance by:
RMS: Google account reset request
DHS: Emailing Ms. Riley at email@example.com or calling the Learning Commons at 404-370-4170 x2119
Most CSD online resources can be accessed via LaunchPad.
Login with your CSD Google Workspace account
