Directory Update - We are excited to announce that we will now be using Membership Toolkit for our Directory and Online Sales effective immediately. Our previous website/app, MySchoolAnywhere, is dissolving. It is important for you to register with the Membership Toolkit by October 30th so that you can maintain access with the BCS directory. When registering for the first time, use the same email address you used for your MySchoolAnywhere Account.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR PATIENCE AND HELP AS WE ALL DO THIS MANDATORY TRANSITION.
If you have not already done so, please visit https://bcspta.membershiptoolkit.com to create a Membership Toolkit Account.
Here's what you need to do:
Once the Primary Account is set up, the Primary User can "invite" other email addresses to access his/her account. This allows the Secondary User to have their own login information, but still have access to the family account. Questions? - Please don't hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
