New to Zoom? Please review this HelpDoc about How Do I Get Started with Zoom.

1. If you are a Long-Term Substitute:

  1. Please set up a Zoom account via Clever using your BPS Google login.
  2. If you have access to the teacher's Google Classroom, please post the Zoom link in the Google Classroom. Or, you can access class information via Aspen.
  3. If you prefer to send students the Zoom link via email, send it to them using their BPS email addresses (found in Aspen or Google Classroom).
The school needs to make sure you have a schedule in Aspen. If you do not, please reach out to your school's Aspen scheduling manager.

2. If you are a Cluster (short-term) Substitute:

  1. Please set up a Zoom account by visiting and use your BPS Google information as your email address.
Please review this HelpDoc of recommended Zoom security settings.
  1. You can find class email lists via the sub folder.
  2. Set up Zoom meetings for your classes and email students the Zoom link.

Please note: Zoom Basic accounts have a time limit of 40 minutes per meeting.
