Charlotte Mecklenburg Schools (CMS) provides Google Mail (GMail) accounts for students in grades Pre-K to 13 for use in conjunction with coursework and day-to-day educational activities. The service offers a confidential and secure channel for students to communicate with CMS teachers and administrators. In some cases, due to age or accessibility, guardians or parents may use the service on behalf of a student.
Safeguards are in place to protect students by blocking incoming emails from unapproved sources outside CMS. Your student should not receive any marketing or spam email. Additionally, students are not able to send emails to domains outside CMS. All student email account passwords are secured through complex passwords and multifactor authentication (MFA).
For the 2023-24 school year, all students will need to reset their passwords and set up their multifactor authentication (MFA) by logging into the CMS Launchpad from a CMS Chromebook or CMS iPad before being able to access their student email.
Students can access their student email by selecting the Student Email icon on their CMS Launchpad.
If your student has problems logging into the CMS Launchpad please contact your student’s teacher for assistance.
