Access school resources at home, just like in class!
Go to:

The Launchpad is a single site where students can access online materials. Students use the
same login as they use at school. Launchpad is used to access the following applications, found in the Instructional Apps folder:
Compass Odyssey
Renaissance Home Connect
Think Central
Pearson Success Net
HMH Central- for Fastt Math and Read 180 (only for certain classes)
Nat Geo

All of these programs use the student’s password form the Launchpad login to authenticate.
This means that when the student logs into the Launchpad, he/she will simply have to click on the Instructional apps folder, and then the icon of the desired app.

Since there have been questions about accessing Renaissance Home Connect, let's use that application as an example.  Keep in mind, these steps will apply to all programs listed above:

Log into the Launchpad.
Launchpad Login
Click on the Instructional Apps Folder.

Then, click on Renaissance Home Connect.  Note the difference in icons; Renaissance Learning is used only at school.

IMPORTANT: It is strongly recommended that students access the Launchpad on desktop or
laptop computers (Windows of Mac) running the Chrome browser, or Chromebook laptops.
Mobile devices such as tablets and phones are NOT recommended for the Launchpad, for
compatibility reasons. Here is the link to download Chrome:
