Instant Connect - Account Access
Bloom-Carroll Local School District uses a service called “Instant Connect” to rapidly notify parents/guardians in the event of a school delay or closing and to relay pertinent information. Student phone number(s) and email addresses are updated daily based on the data within our student information system. If your phone number or email address changes, please log into your Final Forms account and update each child's record, so that your child’s student record can be updated. 

Accelerated Reader - Home Connect
With AR Home Connect, you can login with your child's AR login and view their progress. This link WILL NOT allow the taking of tests. If you are unsure of your child's AR login, please contact the building secretary or AR Coordinator for each building.


Classlink allows students to log into a portal where all of their school applications including email, Google Classroom, Pearson EasyBridge, Houghton Mifflin, and many others can be accessed with a single click of the mouse.  For students to access their portal in Classlink, visit our website at and click on Bulldog Portal, Bulldog Resources.  From there click on the Sign In With ADFS icon, or the Sign in with Google icon.  Students will be prompted to enter a username and password if using the ADFS login.  Students will need to enter bc\ in front of their computer username.  These usernames are in the form of the following:
K-2: student ID, and bc+student ID for password
3-12: first name.last name+last two digits of graduation year and bc+student ID for password
The first time students log into this site they will be prompted to verify their password.  This step must be completed in order for the applications to open correctly.  Failure to complete this step can result in applications failing to load. 
Users will be prompted to install an extension on their home computers.  This extension allows Classlink to communicate with our servers, helping to ensure a successful user experience.  Users can also download an app to their mobile devices by visiting your devices app store and searching for Classlink.  This application is available on both the iOS and Android platform.

Before a student can use Classlink on a home computer, all other users must be logged out of the Chrome Web Browser.
