FALL RIVER PUBLIC SCHOOLS NEW STAFF SYSTEMS INTRODUCTION



All staff regardless of position are encouraged  to become familiar with the various systems you will be using as an employee. FRPS email should be checked daily for most staff and remember to keep your passwords secure.  No one should share their credentials with anyone for any reason. You are responsible for your accounts and their use.

NETWORK LOGIN  Video
All FRPS staff are assigned a network username & password that will log a staff member into network computers, staff email & Google Apps & Moodle.

You will receive your credentials via mail once you are officially hired (usually within 2-3 days after you receive your appointment letter). 

STAFF E-MAIL Video
Fall River uses Gmail as its e-mail provider. All staff are required to use this e-mail account for all school-based communications.  All private e-mails are normally blocked and inaccessible to staff. Fall River adheres to the federal archiving requirements required of school districts

Your e-mail username and password are the same as your network login and can be accessed using the Google Apps link at the top of the district homepage, www.fallriverschools.org
