Kids Connect Log in update / December 14, 2020
As discussed, authentication for Kids Connect is now ready to deploy. Over the Christmas break we will be turning on authentication which will require the use of the Student/Staff K12 email account and password to gain access. There will be a captive portal page that will appear once the WVKidsConnect SSID is selected and a browser is opened. That page will have guidance as well as helpdesk information. WVNET is handling the helpdesk operation and will have access to reset passwords for those people who forget passwords.

Any video that is blocked by the state content filter (shows the blue box with the "x" on it) would need to be whitelisted before it can be viewed. This applies to teacher created channels too. If a teacher creates a channel, we need the link (copy the address bar or share link) sent to us to have the state unblock the channel. Once that is done any video inside the channel that is set to "Public" should be automatically available within 48 hours of being posted. If the video is set to "Private" or "Unlisted", we would need the link to that video sent to us to whitelist before it would be available".
Any video that is not blocked by the filter should be watchable on the Chromebooks no matter if they go into Clever or classroom first. Please have your teachers try the link on a school issued laptop/desktop/virtual desktop (Not their own personal laptop) first to see if it is blocked. If it is, all we need is the link.
Marion County Schools will post relevant news, updates, and guidance for parents, students, teachers, and staff on this page to keep you informed.
