Join the BOE Community
- Click on the
Request Account link at the top of the site.
- Fill out the fields listed on the sign-up page, including
your e-mail address, a password, your name, and the name of the
school or institution with which you are affiliated.
Use your school or institution e-mail address for fast approval. If you choose to use your personal e-mail address, you will be asked to enter a phone number to verify your identity.
Once you have entered your email address, you can select the name of your institution. As you type, you will notice a menu of choices appear. Select the appropriate school or agency. Selecting your school or institution allows you to be connected with your colleagues and gain access to your institution's group in the BOE community.

appropriate for your position and interests. Selecting subjects
and grades may help other BOE members find you when searching for
people with similar interests.
To select more specific areas you can click on the plus sign next to any subject to expand the list. For example, a high school physics teacher may wish to expand the list under science to select physics.
