Parent Access to D2L

There are two ways to log in and learn about your child's learning in Brightspace:

  • MyCBE login (parent access) - Personal parent access to Brightspace via MyCBE will allow you to see a summarized view of your child's overdue items, upcoming work, recent grades, student created Portfolio items shared by the teacher, and news and homework reminders from the activity feed. You can also sign up to receive a weekly email notification of your child’s activity in Brightspace. From the Brightspace login page, click the “Sign In” button under Parents.
  • Student login (student access) - You are encouraged to sit alongside your child as they log into Brightspace to have meaningful conversations around their learning and work. Course content, news items and homework will be accessible in this way. From the Brightspace login page, have your child click the “Sign In” button under CBE Students and Staff.

Please contact your child’s school with any questions around your MyCBE account.  Check out our Parent FAQs. Please contact your child's teacher for more information on whether they use Brightspace, how they use it in their classroom, or any questions you have around viewing your child’s work.
