3. Enter your FCPS Google account email in the field on the right and click Sign In.


4. After initiating the login process you may be prompted to select your G Suite account if you aren't already logged in, or you are logged in to multiple accounts. Be sure to select your FCPS G Suite account

5. If this is not your first time logging in this way, you will be automatically logged in and see your My Projects screen. 


If this is your first time logging in this way, go to step 6 below to create a new account.



6. If prompted, under Account Setup: Step 1, identify the subscription you are logging in under (the school or district name) and the name of your specific location (the school, if the "subscription" was the district, a consortium name, etc.). Click the button "Continue" to go to Step 2.
