Identity Management

Birmingham City Schools has converted to a new identity management platform to maintain authorized access to network and information resources. Through integration of key data systems including the Human Resources and Student Information System all accounts for access are being generated automatically resulting in increased accuracy, efficiency and security. Some key outcomes include:


1. Rapid and automated account creation streamlining network access for new employees and students

2. Increased network and information security

3. New directory structure aligned with current 21st century requirements

4. Cost savings through efficiency including elimination of management of isolated data systems and credentials

5. Consistency of access for all users of IT services


What’s in it for me?

If you are a BCS Employee, Substitute, Contractor or Student, access to district networks and applications is getting easier and easier as we integrate more services through the identity management and single-sign-on portal. Users of BCS IT managed services will have one click access without the need to remember and continually enter different usernames and passwords. We will simplify and take the burden for you. We have enabled access to Office365 including Email and Google Apps for Education.  Read the Official IDM Announcement PDF
