Hello Iowa Community,

Iowa students, grades 2-5, will be engaging in district testing from September 14-18. They will be using the Illuminate app in order to complete their assessments and need to login through the "apps" button on the student Chromebook login screen. If you are using a personal computer you will be able to sign into Illuminate using the link found in your teacher's Google Classroom or by clicking on this link. Below is a tutorial video on how to log into Illuminate using a student Chromebook. If you are using a personal computer please disregard the Chromebook login screen portion of the video and concentrate on the logging in part. Please reach out to your student's teacher or to our technology teacher Joseph Araki if you have any questions about this process.
