    How do I, as a parent, sign in to the MBS Portal (Classlink)?

    ClassLink is the MBS Portal. Parents and guardians may access using their MBS network username which is the same as their Chalkable username. 

    • PowerSchool is our attendance and grading software. Click the link inside ClassLink for PowerSchool. Click the PowerSchool icon to open the software.  
    • Schoology is the learning management system for students in grades K-12. Click the Schoology icon inside ClassLink, and you should see a class tile for courses your student is enrolled in. The Calendar is designed to merge all assignments into one location. If you are missing a classroom tile, please contact the teacher. 

    1. Navigate to the MBS Webpage.

    2. In the accordion on the right side of the webpage, under For Parents, select MBS Portal (Classlink).
