Discovery Education Single Sign-On

The DPS IT department has been collaborating with Discovery Education Integration Specialists to sync all DPS student and staff accounts with Discovery Education. This will afford all district members convenient access to the site and all of its resources. The login for Discovery Education will be synced with the DPS Active Directory, which will ensure that all members will use the same login credentials for Discovery Education as they do for email. As staff and students’ information (i.e. name, location) changes within the DPS Active Directory, those changes will automatically be reflected on the Discovery Education login and user profile. 
Discovery Education will be unavailable to DPS students and staff OUTSIDE of the district (unless you are using VPN) as we transition quickly into a new login process. We will keep you updated as to when this fix has been completed. However, DPS students and staff can NOW use Discovery Education within the district at this time with the following URL: http://de.dpsnc.net.

Please share this information with your staff today so that they are aware of the maintenance/upgrade. We do apologize for any possible inconvenience that this may cause.
