Quick Start Guide

Brightspace is a secure online environment that requires a username and password. To access Brightspace go to https://d2l.bsd405.org/ and enter your BSD username and password on the login screen.


The username is the student’s network login of s- and the student’s last name and first initial. For example: Jane Doe would use s-doej

For students with duplicate last names and first initials, additional characters from the first name are appended to provide for a unique username for each student in the district.  For example: Joe doe might use s-doejo and Joel Doe might use s-doejoe.

Contact your office manager if your student is not sure what their username is.


  • At the Secondary level, the password is whatever the student has chosen to be their password.
  • At the Elementary Level, the password is s# and the student’s ID. For example: s#123456

Student user accounts are considered school resources. Parents wishing to access the Brightspace website will need to know the Student login and password from their child.

Once you login you will come to a personalized home screen where students/parents can see information about their child’s courses.
