How do I sign in?

Go to -> Click the button that says “Sign In with Google”

I forgot my password. Can you reset it?

Teachers will need to contact their district IT to have them assist with the Google password.

Why can’t I book items on Insignia?

Only teachers have access to Insignia. Insignia has a pop-up for logging in. You will need to look in the URL bar and see if it is blocking the pop-up. If so, you will need to allow all pop-ups from Insignia. Once you do that you can then click on the “Login” button on Insignia. Give it a few seconds and it will log you in using your Google information. You will then be able to book items once you are logged in. PDF Instructions
