Parents and guardians automatically have a user ID and password created upon enrolling a child in Columbia Public Schools. Your ParentLink/Blackboard ID and password are the same ID and password you use to access Home Access. If you are new to the school district or have not yet created a Home Access ID and password, you can do so by registering here. Once you have created your ID and password, you can log in to ParentLink/Blackboard via the school district's mobile application or the website. Contact information for the messaging system is managed via the district's student information system. Contact information can be updated by contacting your child's school registrar. Logging in to the Parentlink/Blackboard messaging system will allow parents to see sent messages, attendance messages, lunch balance communications and more.
Community members, who are not parents/guardians, can also create a ParentLink/Blackboard account by visiting the ParentLink/Blackboard login page and clicking on the signup button. Sign up to receive e-mail and text message updates from Columbia Public Schools.
