For Facilitators of Clubs affiliated with the New York DOE, there is a new way to create student accounts.
Under the new NYC DOE Participation agreement, we will not collect personal information (Date of Birth, Email, Grade Level, Race/Ethnicity) about Club Members. Members of these Clubs can still access HQ, but the Facilitator must create their accounts.
Step 1: Open the Members Page for your Club in HQ and Click on the Add Members button
Step 2: Type a list of names (first name or nickname) into the text area separated one a new line like shown:
Step 3: Click Next to review the accounts that will generate.
Please note that you can edit the information provided as needed but that usernames must be unique in our system, and some usernames may already be taken.
Step 4: Click Create Accounts to finalize the process. Download a CSV with usernames and passwords to distribute the information to students.
Always use security best practices. Note that you can still help reset a Members’ passwords when needed.
You can confirm which accounts have been activated on the Members Page. For accounts that are active, you will see a “Last login” date.. If the Members’ card says “Created At”, they have not yet logged in to activate the account.
