Answers to Frequently Asked Questions About SchoolPass


Columbus Academy is transitioning its parent portal from My BackPack to Blackbaud's mySchoolApp for the 2020-21 school year. Parents and guardians will use mySchoolApp to access directory information, attendance, academic records, schedules and much more. To ease the transition, our technology team will maintain access to some components of the current My BackPack portal through October. This will include access to the directory and grade card information from the 2019-20 school year. Parents and guardians can now set up their mySchoolApp accounts by going to the “Forgot login or First time logging in?link.
