Wake ID is a website that allows you to directly log into your student account in other websites that WCPSS has partnered with to provide a strong digital foothold for students to interact with. It gives your student access to their WCPSS Outlook email, Google student account, Google Classroom, Canvas, Gale Resources, SAS Curriculum Pathways, and WakeVue.
WCPSS’s Outlook is the only way for a student to communicate with their teacher and get a response so it’s paramount that students learn to use this quickly. And an added bonus is that students that use WCPSS WakeID also get free access to Office 365, which mean free use of Microsoft Word, Powerpoint, OneNote, Excel, and more.
Wake County has provided a very helpful PDF to explain how to log in to Wake ID here.
