Azle ISD 2020-2021 Technology

  • Students use Classlink (https://launchpad.classlink.com/azle) to access all district apps. When accessing Classlink, we highly recommend using the Chrome browser or the Classlink App on an iPad. It will make access to Education Galaxy, Canvas, and Seesaw much easier and cause fewer issues. Make sure you are logging into the Chrome browser (regardless of the type of device you are using) using your student's @g.azleisd.net account. If you are signed in to Chrome with a personal account, make sure you sign out and back in with your student's @g.azleisd.net account.

    Please do this first before logging into Launchpad: Sign in to a Chrome Browser using the student Google Login.

    WINDOWS

    • Open Chrome.
    • Go to www.google.com.
    • On the top right of the window, you should see the letter of your student's first name. Click on the letter and verify that you are signed in with your student's @g.azleisd.net account.
    • If you don’t see your student's information listed then click “Sign Out.” Then sign in with the student's credentials.
