Teachers' Tools

    Information and Websites for Teachers

    These links are to assist the Highland staff with their professional duties.

    There is a change from past practices, as we were able to use generic usernames and passwords.  Here is what the student usernames and passwords will look like:


    Student ID number




    Capital First Initial lower case last initial birthday

    Example (Student’s name is John Doe. His birthday is January 1, 2010


     (NO leading zeroes needed for single digit birth months and days.)

    NOTE:  There is no www on this web address and there is 'ee'

    Discovery Education

    ·         All staff and students accounts will be linked through AD (Active Directory) with SSO (Single Sign On)

    ·         Instead of going to DiscoveryEducation.com staff will now go to cnusd.discoveryeducation.com

    ·         All accounts and usernames have been merged based on your staff emails; in addition class rosters are now automated.
              Student’s grades 3-12 will have the same SSO as teachers logging in with just their student ID# now, PROVIDED they have
              logged into the computer with their student ID# and did NOT use the schools generic mascot username. See student login FAQ’s.

    ·         Students K-2 will still use DiscoveryEducation.com with the same generic credentials cnusd<student ID#> and the password Cnusd123.

    ·         Outside the district network, cnusd.discoveryeducation.com will use your full email address to sign in.

    ·         Students usernames will be <studentID#>@students.cnusd.discoveryeducation.com and their current password from school to access
              Discovery from home.
