Parents, please take a moment to review the 2020-2021 Clayton County Public Schools Student Handbook. After you have reviewed the Student Handbook, please complete sign off at this link 2020-2021 Student/Parent Handbook. It is important that we have signatures for every student, therefore please sign off for each of your children. Thanks in advance for your support.

There is a wealth of information for parents. Please take some time to shift some of the information to the tabs. I have included photos of my notes below. Please let me know if you have any questions.

Thank you,

Kelley M. Starks

How to Login to the CCPS Portal

  1. Click HERE to review the “How Do I Login and Prevent Future Login Issues” video. 
  2. Using a Chrome browser, go to (NOTE: All CCPS student devices will default to the CCPS Portal login landing page, upon launching the Chrome browser.)
  3. Enter the student’s username and click “Go”. (NOTE: ALL student usernames begin with the letter “S” and a “0” zero, followed by their student ID#. Example: S0123456)
  4. Enter the student password and click “Go”.
  5. Students will then be logged into the CCPS Portal.  This is where students will access instructional resources.

Troubleshooting Tips



When my student attempts to login to the CCPS Portal, the error message “Authentication Failed” is displayed. 

  • Ensure you are entering the correct username. All student usernames begin with the letter “S”.

  • Ensure you are entering the correct password. Passwords are case sensitive.

***Users can click the “eye” icon on the login landing page to see information being entered. 

When my student attempts to login to the CCPS Portal, the error message “Invalid username or Password” appears. 

  • This message is only displayed when students use incorrect credentials. Have them click the “eye” icon to ensure they are typing in the correct credentials. 

On my student’s personal device(s), I am certain the student is using the correct username and password. The “Authentication Failed” error message still appears. 

  • This may be due to the computer having cached another user’s information. Clear the browser history/cache (Ctrl+Shift+Delete) and attempt to log in again. Additionally, ensure another user is not logged into the browser. Using a browser’s incognito mode is a good practice when multiple children are sharing a personal device.

  • Ensure the student is entering the correct username and password. Click the “eye” icon to see what is being entered.
