“The (Palm Beach County School) District is continuing to work through some technical issues with the District Portal this morning. If you’re still experiencing issues, students can get into classes by going to classroom.google.com

The IT team is working to resolve these issues ASAP.”

BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — DEVELOPING — The Palm Beach County School District portal is down for a large number of students, according to parents contacting BocaNewsNow.com We have verified the problem as well. While not affecting all students, the system is returning a “the site can’t be reached” message for several students and teachers attempting to log in.

The Palm Beach County School District Portal is a gateway to Google Classroom and Google Meet for use by students and teachers.

Today is the first day of school for students in Palm Beach County. School is starting with “distance learning” as a result of COVID-19.

Parents contacting BocaNewsNow.com are expressing outrage with the District’s inability to manage its IT systems. The first outages hit as elementary school students logged on between 7:45 and 8 a.m., a second wave began at 8:20 as Middle School students district-wide began to log-in.
