American Eagle

American Eagle is the CMS (Content Management System) used to control the Maine 207 district websites, and in turn, is where staff, class, and club webpages are hosted. Below is a general FAQ listing for the most common questions we receive regarding the American Eagle website system.
  1. Visit the following page: https://www.maine207.org/admin
  2. You will be asked for your user name, which is merely your FULL email address (e.g. jjohnson@maine207.org). Click Login.
  3. You will be asked next for your password, which is separate from any other password you may have UNLESS you set this one to be the same as another manually. Click login.
  4. Once logged in, you will see your welcome Dashboard which gives you access to all of the features that have access to.

Q: What is my password for American Eagle? How do I reset it?

A: Your password for American Eagle is completely different from SIS and Staff Gmail. You can change it to be the same as another system, but keep in mind that it will NOT automatically stay in sync with anything else!

If you happen to have forgotten your password, you can use the "Forgot Password" link under the Login box on the Am Eagle login page to have the system change your password for you.

Simply enter your proper user name (reminder: your full email address) and you will receive an email sent with a new password you can use to login.

Q: What do I have control over on American Eagle?

A: This depends on a few different things:
  • If you are a teacher, you will have control over the class pages that you teach and your staff profile.
  • If you are support staff, you will have access to your staff profile listing (unless you were given more access, for example, to edit your department website).
  • If you are an department chair or administrator, you have access to your profile page, your department's webpage, and possibly the staff profile pages for those in your dept.
  • If you are in charge of any sports teams or clubs, you will have access to those pages.
If there is any part of the site which you do not have control of, but believe you should have access to (such as a club site), feel free to submit a Helpdesk request to explain your situation.

Q: Can I use a Google Site for my department/class/sport/club page instead of Am Eagle?

A: YES! There is no objection to building Google Sites to take the place of any established department, sport, club, or class page. As long as you have a finished product that can be linked to, you can freely submit a Helpdesk request and let us know which page needs to be redirected to your Google Site.

The most important part that we need from you is the exact URL, or address, to the Google Site. This can be obtained simply by:
  1. Visiting your Google Site's homepage (or main page that visitors are to see when they arrive at your page).
  2. Copying the entire address from the address bar (which begins with http://......)
  3. Pasting that address into the Helpdesk ticket so we can properly establish your redirect request.
If you need assistance, feel free to ask Tech for help.

Q: How do I use American Eagle once I am logged in?

A: The Tech Dept has a specific Google Doc that is always being updated for staff that describes the entire process of working in Am Eagle.

You can find the document here.
