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.



Password: YYYYMMDD 


2. Once you enter the first website, you will encounter the filtering process.

Type in your username like this:

Iniciar sesión en una escuela o Chromebook personal con su cuenta escolar desde casa

 Cuando CMS comenzó a enviar Chromebooks a casa en algunas escuelas, querían asegurarse de que los estudiantes estuvieran en una red filtrada mientras usaban un dispositivo escolar.

La ventaja es que están en la misma red filtrada que en la escuela. Siga las instrucciones a continuación para registrarse en nuestro sistema de seguridad Zscaler.

1. Inicie sesión en el Chromebook como lo hace normalmente.

Contraseña: YYYYMMDD (Fecha de nacimiento)
