As you may know, EIPS has recently adopted D2L Brightspace as our primary learning management system (LMS). The purpose of an LMS is to provide a virtual environment for teaching and learning. Having a platform like Brightspace will allow students and teachers to remain connected to their classrooms, even when they are not able to attend school.   

Brightspace is a tool for all EIPS families, not just those registered in out-of-school learning, as such many teachers have begun using Brightspace with their in-class students. If your child needs to login to Brightspace at home and need’s your assistance, please refer to the student login tutorial below. Students will use their EIPS division assigned email and password to login at If your child is unsure of their login credentials, please contact your child's classroom teacher.
