Parent Account Activation
The following directions are for activating a parent Edline account.
Do you already have an Edline account? - add a child to an existing account
Step 1 — Go to http://www.edline.net/pages/montgomery_cps/
Step 2 — Click on "Click here if you have a new activation code."
Step 3 — Type in the activation code provided for you. If you have more than one parent code because you have more than one child at a school, or at more than one MCPS school, enter each parent code, one after the other. After typing in each code, click “Enter.”
Step 4 — Then you see a screen that identifies you as your child's, or children's, parent. Click "Activate this Code."
Step 6 — On the next screen, click "New Account." Type in your screen name and a password. We suggest you choose something you'll easily remember, perhaps the same screen name and password for your existing email account. Click "Continue."
Step 7 — Type in your email address and choose your preferences for receiving email.
Step 8 — Click on the down arrow in the Security question box, choose a topic, and type in the answer. Click “Update.”
Step 9 — Click "Done" in the upper right hand corner of the Edline screen. You'll now see your Edline home page with your child's name, or your children’s names, linked to it.

What if I forget my screen name and/or password?
Click on the link “I forgot my screen name or password” from the home page of each participating school’s web site and follow the instructions.
What information will I be able to see?
Grade book information such as individual assignment and assessment (class quizzes and tests) scores, and current course grades will be available for each class.
What do I do if I do not have a computer at home?
You can use any computer with Internet access -- at your local public library, school media center, community center, etc.
Do parents and students have separate/individual accounts?

Can a non-custodial parent have an account?
