What are WakeIDs and the WakeID Portal?

  • WakeID is a username that WCPSS employees and students use to access applications and electronic resources through the WakeID Portal at https://wakeid.wcpss.net (not live).
  • The WakeID is not connected with your Network login.

How will I know what my WakeID is?

  • Existing employees and students with active email accounts will use the first part of their email address as their WakeID (jsmith.)
  • New employees’ WakeID will be sent to their supervisor and to their personal email address.

What does my WakeID look like?

  • The WakeID resembles the first part of a WCPSS email address (e.g. jsmith)

What is my Extended WakeID?

  • The extended WakeID resembles a complete email address (e.g. jsmith@wcpss.net or jsmith@students.wcpss.net)
  • Some applications will require the extended WakeID.

What is my WakeID password?

  • Employees set their WakeID password during the claim account process.
  • New students’ default passwords are their student ID numbers.
  • New WCPSS students and current students who do not know their WakeID will receive this information from their teacher or another school staff member.
  • Students in grades 3-13 are required to change their password on first login.
