This page includes documents that will help you log in and access CIITS. There is guidance on setting up e-mails, assigning roles and permissions to ensure correct access, logging in (including passwords) and updating account information.
If you work for a Kentucky school district
You will need to use your assigned work e-mail address (email@example.com). This e-mail address will become your CIITS user name. See your school or district technology coordinator if you do not have such an e-mail address. Using your personal or home e-mail address will not work for logging into CIITS.
Once you receive your temporary password and log in for the first time, you will be required to change your password. Your new password must be 6-12 characters long, include only numbers and letters, contain at least one letter and one number, and be easy to remember.
You will need separate KET Encyclomedia: Discovery Education
and SAS Curriculum Pathways
user names and passwords to access instructional materials in CIITS. If you do not have this login information, click on the links above. For KET Encyclomedia: Discovery Education, choose “register”; for SAS, select your district from the dropdown and then fill in the requested information.
If you believe you need greater access to CIITS than you are currently granted, please submit the District Custom Role Request form to you district’s CIITS point of contact.
If you are a KDE employee
If your name has been submitted to the CIITS team for access to the system, you will need to use your KDE e-mail address (firstname.lastname@example.org) for logging into CIITS. Using your personal or home e-mail address will not work for logging into CIITS. Most KDE employees who have access will have access only to standards and aggregate data. If you do not have access to CIITS and believe you need it for your job, or think you need greater access, please submit the KDE Employee Access Request form to your director or associate commissioner.
When logging in, please select Kentucky Department of Education from the drop down menu as your district name.
Once you receive your temporary password and log in for the first time, you will be required to change your password. Your new password must 6-12 characters long, include only numbers and letters, contain at least one letter and one number and be easy to remember.
If you work for an education co-op, educator preparation program or affiliated education group
You have access to CIITS through the District 175 Project. This is a training environment that contains scrambled student data. Please contact your director, dean’s office or department chair for login credentials. Alternatively, educator preparation personnel may contact Kim Walters-Parker, Director, Educator Preparation Division, Education Professional Standards Board (EPSB), (502) 564-5789.
