Illuminate LOGIN

Google SSO has now been enabled for both staff and students in illuminate. 

We are moving Illuminate toward full Google SSO integration. The first step is to migrate district-managed email accounts to authenticate with Illuminate, which will allow for single sign-on (SSO) access via Google.  This means users will login via Google - if you are already in Google, one click and you'll be immediately directed to Illuminate. 


Password resets will continue to be made via the district's Accounts Portal > Password Reset. If you need password assistance, contact the PVUSD Help Desk (x8324) as Illuminate's Forgot Password does not work.

If staff login to Illuminate outside of Google, the credentials will change slightly.  Staff and Student Username will now include the complete district email address:  


If you have access to multiple sites, you’ll be prompted to select a site from those to which you have permission. Select CONTROL PANEL in the upper right corner.  From the Control Panel, you can quickly change your login site, select a specific Student Group, or access the HELP section.
