Login Instructions for New Users
Creating new teacher accounts using passcodes is easy!
Teachers may create their own Discovery Education Streaming account using their school's teacher passcode. Each teacher passcode is a random eight-character alphanumeric code (example: A123-B123). Passcodes are unique and specific to each individual school/building within your school district.
Once you obtain your school's passcode, go to www.discoveryeducation.com and click on the Passcode/New User tab. Enter your school's eight-digit passcode in the provided boxes, and click on Login. If you do not know your school passcode, please contact your school or district Discovery Education administrator or the ESC-20 staff appearing on this page.
You will be required to enter your information in order to create a user account.
Please note that your username must be at least 6 characters long and unique not only to your school but unique to the whole DE community. Please do not use personal information (such as Social Security Numbers) when creating your username.
Login Instructions for Users who have Changed Campuses / Districts
Update your campus/district assignment and keep your account information intact!
When you transfer to a new school or district, obtain the teacher passcode for your new school. Each teacher passcode is a random eight-character alphanumeric code (example: A123-B123). Passcodes are unique and specific to each individual school/building within your school district.
Once you obtain your school's passcode, go to www.discoveryeducation.com and click on the Passcode/New User tab. Enter your school's eight-character passcode in the provided boxes, and click on Login. On the next screen, select the "Existing Login" option and login with your old account information. Your old account and content materials will be transfered to your new campus/district.
Once you have logged in, click on your profile and update your email address and other contact information. You can also change your username at that time if desired. Please note that your username must be at least 6 characters long and unique not only to your school but unique to the whole DE community. Due to the unique nature of an email address, it often makes a good username.
