  How do I … Link my Guardian Account to my Student’s Account?

  • Send a request to link your guardian account and the student to: help-desk@iacademy.org.  Be sure to include your name and the name of your student.  
  • Once your accounts are linked, please verify that the student contact information is correct – especially the email address.  This is the email address that will receive the logon, password and notifications. By default, a FWPS student’s email account is set to their district gmail account: [student ID #]@p12fwps.org.  The password is the same one they use to log in to a computer at school.

How do I …  Get back into Apex or Odyssey? It won’t let me login!

In order to protect student work from loss or corruption, Apex will not load or reopen if it’s software detects that Apex is already open on the device or the student account is logged on elsewhere.  This may be due to the student not logging off an earlier session or that Apex is already loaded in a different tab or window, or there is a “bad cookie” that needs to be replaced.  The quickest and most effective solution is to shut the computer down, count to 10 after all the lights are off, and restart.

If you continue to experience an error when loading Apex, delete your cookies and cache and restart.  Click here for instructions > >

A temporary work-around is to log on to your iA courses using a different web browser (Firefox instead of Chrome or vice-versa) or to open a new browser window “incognito” or “privately.”  Either method bypasses cookies and will provide a quick solution.

Students should log off to Apex completely at the end of every work session.

How do I …  See my content? The screen is blank!

Many iA courses require Flash and Java enabled in the browser or device you are using.   If your firewall or browser settings do not allow Flash or Java content, a blank screen will appear where the video or interactive assignment would be.  Please familiarize yourself with your personal computer software settings.  For steps on how to enable Java and Flash, click HERE > >
