The Educator Process:

STEP 1 - Create an Account

Creating an account is simple! (NOTE: If your school is not currently registered on Your Future Fox Cities, you will need to contact the Fox Cities Chamber team to get your school and school Admin account setup.)

  1. Click on Register in the top right of your screen. The registration form will then open. You will need to fully complete the form by correctly entering all of your information.
  2. Email - Enter your school e-mail address.
  3. First Name - Enter your first name.
  4. Last Name - Enter your last name.
  5. User Type - Select EDUCATOR from the dropdown menu.
  6. School - Select your school from the dropdown menu. (NOTE: If your school is not listed here, please contact your designated Site Admin or the team at the Fox Cities Chamber by using the Contact form.)
  7. Review all of your entered information for misspellings and accuracy. Any incorrect information may result in your account not working correctly.
  8. Click REGISTER once complete.

STEP 2 - Get Approval

After you click REGISTER, an email will be automatically sent to your school's dedicated Site Admin for approval of your Teacher account. 

The Site Admin will verify your account in the email and you will then be sent a series of emails to access your account. If you DO NOT see any emails come through from Your Future Fox Cities, please check your SPAM or Junk folder in your email.

  1. The first email you receive after your account is verified will contain a website link (URL) for you to obtain your account password.
  2. After you click on the link, you will then receive a second email with your computer-generated password. This password will be long and tricky - you will have the opportunity to update the password to something you can remember once you log into your account.
  3. You can now access the website. Simply click on LOGIN in the upper right of your screen and enter your email address and computer-generated password.
  4. You now have access to browse the website and download resources - ENJOY!

 

If you want to change your password once you are logged into your account, you can click on your name in the upper right and update your profile.
