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.
Marion County Schools will post relevant news, updates, and guidance for parents, students, teachers, and staff on this page to keep you informed.
