Blackbaud ID for Parents
In June 2022, Dwight-Englewood School will make a change to parent sign-ins through our school's MyDE portal. Your MyDE account will be converted to a Blackbaud ID account. This is a modern authentication system which uses your email address as your username so it is easier to sign in. It also supports Sign in with Google if you are using a Gmail account, so you don't need to remember a separate password.
Once we enable Blackbaud ID, you'll receive an email notification prompting you to sign up for a Blackbaud ID account so that you can link your MyDE parent account with your Blackbaud ID. If you miss the email, you'll be prompted to complete this process the next time you sign in to the MyDE portal. We've created a short tutorial that will show you what this process looks like. You can view it here:
If you need assistance with this process, please contact the Computer Services Help Desk at firstname.lastname@example.org or 201-227-3179.
