Classlink Help

Welcome to Classlink, the new Single Sign on portal used by Capital School District and the Delaware Department of Education. 

Classlink will help provide integrated access to many Capital School District applications using a single sign in for Capital School District Staff and Students. This portal utilizes the same login that you use to access Capital computer's, email, google, and other services. 

Below you will see how to login and how to access DDOE applications that were formerly inside of IMS. Need more help? Submit a service request here. 

Here is how you login:

First, visit

Then, click the "Login with ADFS" button. This will allow you to sign in with the same username and password that you use to sign into the computer, email, google, and other services.

That's it - you will now be signed into classlink!

How to login to IMS and other DOE Applications

Please watch the video below for a visual explanation on how to find IMS and other IMS applications.

DOE is still working to move all IMS applications over to Classlink. For now, only a few are available in the "DDOE Applications Library" in Classlink, along with a special IMS icon to login to access all other IMS applications not available in Classlink*. 

*Important Note: You will still need to request permissions inside of IMS applications (like eSchool and PowerSchoolEP) via service request. The steps below will just add the application to your Classlink Dashboard, this does not necessarily provide direct access to many applications. We realize this is a change from how IMS worked previously, but in the future this will provide more self service options to all staff. 

How to add resources to your Classlink Portal

Classlink provides a unique opportunity for Staff to add resources directly to their own portals, allowing you to focus only on the links that you need. In the video tutorial below it will show you how to add items to your portal* in less than 60 seconds.

*Important Note: Many applications listed in the Staff resource library are rostered through Classlink or Clever based on data from eSchool, so you may not have access to all items in the list.

Tips and Tricks:
  • Classlink Quick Cards must be generated by the Classroom Teacher. These cannot be generated by anyone who is not assigned as a teacher in the eSchool Course.

  • You do not need to generate Quick Cards for students in more than one course. For example, if a student has a Reading, Writing, Math, and Library course, the classroom teacher should choose one course (Usually Reading will suffice for Grade PK-1) and generate the Quick Cards. The Library teacher does not also need to generate Quick Cards. 

  • If you delete a students Quick Card(or regenerate it), the current Quick Card will stop working immediately. 

  • There is no need to delete Quick Cards for former students. As long as students are deactivated in eSchool, their login will also stop functioning.

  • There is no need to regenerate Quick Cards when a student changes classrooms. The Quick Card information will follow their eSchool schedule over to the new teacher. 

  • Quick Cards should be kept confidential as they contain a students full username and password in the QR code. Students should never share or photograph another students Quick Card.

  • Quick Cards only function on Capital School District Chromebooks. Quick cards can be used on a home/personal device to login to Classlink directly at as long as the device the are using contains a working camera. If the device is a tablet or phone, they will require the Classlink App to be installed.
