Hall Pass for Single Sign On

Looking for a link that you used to have access to, but is NOT listed in Hall Pass? Send us an email at

When a school or district website integrates with another website, students, parents, teachers, and other staff members appreciate a seamless connection to that site, and don’t want to stop to once again enter a user name and password. The Hall Pass feature lets your users enter their sign-on information to the other websites directly from your school’s Edline website to save the information. Then, they can access the other website directly from Hall Pass without needing to enter that information again.

The Hall Pass feature is currently available for district-level single sign-on only. The district must setup Hall Pass for the schools.

The following third-party tools are supported in the Hall Pass feature:

How to Enable the Hall Pass Feature

Before students, parents, teachers, and other users of your school website can use the Hall Pass feature, district super users must first setup the Hall Pass feature. You can manage the single sign-on for a selection of SIS (Student Information System) tools, and other teacher tools and learning centers. For any third-party tool to be available to your end-users through the My Hall Pass feature, if must first be enabled at the district-level.
