What is Brightspace? Learning Resource Management system - LRM Single place teachers, students and families can go to find out about BSD curriculum Why now? We needed to move from Global Scholar to a new platform and Brightspace was the best choice. Who can access? Only BSD teachers and students. Parents need to access the site using their child’s username and password
How to access the site Go to www.BSD405.org and look at the top of any page to see quick links to the popular sites.www.BSD405.org
The username is the student's network login of s- and the student's last name and first initial. For example, Jane Doe would use: s-doej John Doe would use: s-doejo If you do not know your Username- Contact your office manager or classroom teacher. At the Secondary level, the password is whatever the student has chosen to be their password. At the Elementary Level, the password is s# and the student's ID. For example, s#123456
