Google Single Sign On with ClassLink

If you are unable to log in to your Google account and need immediate assistance, call 2099. If you are not calling from a district phone, call (469) 952-5414.

Overview

Single Sign On (SSO) in Google will look slightly different depending on the Google service you are trying to log in to. In some cases, you will be asked to enter your email address before being redirected to a ClassLink login page. In other cases you will be redirected immediately. When logging in to the ClassLink login page, use the same username and password that you use to log in to your desktop computer.

Chrome Devices

When logging in to a Chrome device you will be presented with a page that explains that the device is managed by princetonisd.net.

  1. Click Next
  2. Enter your district username and password (the same login you use for your computer)
  3. Click Sign In

Google Web Services (Drive, Gmail, etc...)

In most cases, when accessing a Google web service such as Drive or Gmail you will be prompted to enter your email before being redirected to ClassLink where you will be asked to enter your district username and password. In some cases you will be redirected immediately. This will only happen if you navigate directly to a Princeton login page for Google such as https://drive.google.com/a/princetonisd.net. Thus in almost every case the following steps will be true.

  1. Navigate to the Google service
  2. Enter your email address
  3. Once redirected, enter your district username and password (the same login you use for your computer)

Email Clients (Outlook, Apple Mail, etc...)

Most email clients will behave similarly to Google Web Services. Very old email clients may need to have a "less secure" password configured. Google has an article on their knowledge base that explains how to do this (link).
