New Student Guide
Welcome to Tacoma Online
Thank you for joining us! We’re excited you’re here and want you to enjoy not only a successful start, but a successful Tacoma Online (TOL) experience.
This page will get you up and running and hopefully address many of your questions. Starting any new school can be confusing! We're here to help. If you can't find what you're looking for try these things first:
- Check your TPS email account. Tacoma Online and its teachers will communicate with you primarily over this email. Your should have an email with instructions to begin your classes and links to your first meetings there. If you don't know how to get into your email, go to https://tol.tacomaschools.org/ and in the upper right, choose OFFICE 365. Your username is your TPS student ID@tps10.org (ex. email@example.com).
If you need your password reset, call Roxanne at 253-571-2095
