NCEdCloud Badge and Pictograph Logins for PK-5


Public Schools of North Carolina

The NCEdCloud IAM Service team is excited to announce that alternative login methods are being offered for younger students of school districts and charter schools to access the NCEdCloud IAM Service. The two alternate login options will be available for the start of the 2019 - 2020 academic school year, including badges (QR codes) and pictographs. Starting on Friday, August 16th, staff members with the LEA Administrator or LEA Data Auditor role in the NCEdCloud IAM Service will be able to request these alternate authentication options.

The following webinars have been scheduled for LEA and charter school administrators and technology staff to attend to gain a better understanding of how each login option can be implemented, managed, and supported:

Webinar 1: Tuesday, August 13, 2019, from 1:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. EST

Webinar 2: Wednesday, August 21, 2019, from 2:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. EST

Please note the following items regarding the rollout of these alternate student login options:

  • Selection of the alternate authentication method can be selected by grade, for grades PK – 5, for your entire district or charter school.
  • Existing username and passwords will continue to work for PK – 5 students, even after an alternate authentication method is selected.
  • Once these options are made available for opting into on August 16th, a new button to scan a QR code will appear on the NCEdCloud IAM Service login page (see image below).  Even though all users will be able to click that button, only those students who have a QR code generated by the NCEdCloud will be able to authenticate using this login path.



Please visit the alternate login for K-5 students webpage on the NCEdCloud IAM Service website at for further information about each option, how to request an alternate student login option, FAQs, updates to upcoming webinars, and updates to the rollout timeline. Subsequent communications will be provided over the next two weeks as additional information is available regarding the rollout of these alternate login methods for K-5 students.
