Who is allowed to access the MCOE Portal, and why do I need to sign in for the paid resources?

We have whitelisted school districts that have agreements with us for digital services. We receive a list of student and teacher information at the start of every school year. We do not share student information with any organizations or digital resource websites. Only teacher information is used to establish accounts across the multiple resources and for account management purposes. The Portal allows a smooth connection to the other paid resources without needing to remember another username and password, if at all.


How do I sign in?

Click the button that says “Sign In with Google” at the top and sign in with your school Google account. Only contracting districts are whitelisted to sign in with Google.

Other users may sign in at the bottom of the website with credentials provided by us. If you would like a generic student account for a grade level without Google accounts then please let us know which school site you are at. 


I forgot my password. Can you reset it?

Teachers will need to contact their district IT to have them assist with resetting their Google password. Our website database does not store Google passwords and we are not able to reset. If we created the account in the Portal for you then please let us know and we can reset.


Why can’t I book items in 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.

I clicked on the California Streaming icon and it doesn’t have me logged in.

If you clicked on the CS image and you are not logged in then please let us know. Certificated staff are given an individual account, and students are signed into the generic student account in CS.


I signed into Nearpod with my Google account, but some of the items want me to pay for it.

Nearpod is only available to schools that subscribe to it through us. We will need to add you to the district group so you have full access if under one of these schools. Please let us know so we may correct this.


Do I have full access to a website under the “Resources” tab?

Websites under Resources have been vetted for student privacy and have free content available.


However, the California State Library has subscribed to three databases that only signed in users are granted access to: ProQuest, TeachingBooks, and Encyclopedia Britannica. Your local school librarian can also assist in getting access to the state library databases for students and teachers.
