What is Connect?
Connect is an integrated online platform developed by the Department of Education WA for staff, students and parents in public schools. It is used to communicate, provide and share content. View a short clip on Connect.
How do we access Connect?
Each parent will be given their own individual secure login for Connect. The username will look like this P1234567 and a temporary password is sent to the email address that you provide to the school. Accessing Connect allows you to view your child’s Connect Class and receive class and school based related notifications via email or push notification. A free app called Connect Now can be downloaded from Google Play or the Apple App Store.
What if I have multiple children?
You will only need one login – even if their children attend different public schools. When logging in to Connect parents will be able to see information specific to their own child such as:
– classes for each child
– week by week attendance information
– assessment outlines information drawn from Reporting to Parents
– assessments and evidence for their child
– notices from classes that automatically generate an email notification to the parents.
