Q: Oops! I paid the Bell City Registration fees instead of the CPSB Connected Classroom Virtual Reg Fees – What do I do?

Q:We have personal devices at home, how do I know if they are compatible for distance learning?

A:Most virtual learning is web-based meaning internet access is all you need  However, you can try to have your student log into their launchpad (launchpad.cpsb.org) to access:
