Help - Blackboard

  • Overview:

    Blackboard is the Learning Management System in use within the School District of Waukesha. As more digital resources are used by students in the classroom, Blackboard is particularly well suited at organizing that content to make it meaningful and easily accessible for users.

    Blackboard is an incredibly versatile tool that can be used for posting assignments and information for student/parent access, organizing professional resources, for sharing lesson plans or assessments, offering self-paced professional development, for communicating key information to the entire staff, or, or for running a face-to-face, hybrid, or virtual classroom.

    There are several different types of login, based on your role: student, parent/guardian, teacher. The login information below will outline how to properly log into Blackboard.

    If below is not able to solve your problem you can also try the Blackboard Support Site:

    Student Login Information:

    Students will use their Domain Login to log on to Blackboard.

    Username: First part of district email address (everything prior to the @ sign).

    Student Name: John Testaccount
    Email Address:
    Domain Username: jtestacc000

    Password: Same as your Domain Login Password

    Parent/Guardian Login to Blackboard:

    As soon as students have been enrolled into a Blackboard course by the teacher of that course, the student's parents/guardians are also automatically enrolled into that course. Parents are issued a Blackboard login.

    Provided a parent/guardian has access to all of his/her children with a single Infinite Campus Portal login, the parent/guardian will also be able to observe all of his/her children in Blackboard. The process for switching which child the parent is observing in Blackboard is outlined here/espanol.

    In the event that a parent/guardian cannot see all of his/her children, or in the event that a parent/guardian is not aware of his/her Infinite Campus Portal login information, they should contact the building secretary for the school the child attends.

    To find your Blackboard Parent login username and password:

          1. You must first login to your Infinite Campus Portal account. Click here for directions.
