Problems logging in to Clever
Log in with Clever
If you see the error 'Invalid username or password', this means that the username and/or password you entered are not correct for your Clever account.
Select Get help logging in! to reset your password using the email address linked to your district's Clever account.
Please note: Not all districts allow teachers to reset their own passwords. If you do not see the option to reset your password, or if this doesn't resolve the issue, please contact your district's tech support contact directly for help.
Log in with Google
Enter is your school-provided email address (not an @gmail.com address). The password you enter will be the password associated with your school email address.
If you see the error Couldn't find your Google account, this means the email address you are entering does not exist in Clever and may be incorrect. Please confirm you are using your school-provided email, not your personal email. If you still receive the error, reach out to your district support contact to determine your correct email.
If you see the error message Wrong password. Try again or click Forgot password to reset it, this means the password you entered is incorrect. You will need to enter the correct password or, if your district allows it, use the 'Forgot password?' option to reset the password for your account.
If you see the error message Uh oh! We were not able to authenticate using Google email: email@example.com, this means Clever was unable to find an active account in Clever with your email address. First, confirm you are using your district-provided email address. If the issue persists, reach out to your district support contact to resolve the issue.
