  3. Login with your district user credentials (same as computer login: FirstInitialLastname)

Why You should use pdfs instead of Word Docs

While it is easy to upload Word docs to your website, the best alternative is Adobe PDFs. DO NOT use the office copy machine to create PDFs, create them from your original documents.
