Logging Into a School or Personal Chromebook With Your School Account From Home
When CMS starting sending Chromebooks home at some schools, they wanted to make sure that the students were on a filtered network while using a school device. As a result, to even use a personal device with a school account, there are a few additional steps to log in. The perk is that they are on the same filtered network as at school. Follow the directions below to register with our Zscaler security system.
1. Log in to the Chromebook like you normally do.
(Birthday password - ex: 20090812 = August 8, 2009)
2. Once you enter the first website, you will encounter the filtering process.
Type in your username like this:

Username: studentID@cms.k12.nc.us (again the word student is missing from the domain)
Password: YYYYMMDD (Birthdate)
