Get Started

  • View netTrekker Features Tour (4 minute Flash video) to preview an overview of netTrekker's award winning features
  • Bookmark (add to your Favorites) the internet shortcut to netTrekker: http://school.nettrekker.com.

Access netTrekker

netTrekker recommends that each user create a login for themselves through the online registration process. A login enables access to netTrekker from school or home. Usernames may not be duplicated; however, passwords may be repeated. Students, teachers, and parents have the ability to create their own usernames and passwords from our registration page. Optionally, the use of a single shared username is permitted in netTrekker.

To create usernames, please go to http://school.nettrekker.com and click Register. Instructions and a video on how to register a username can be found within our Online Videos.

IP access is an option for district-wide subscriptions only and will require you to reply to us with your IP addresses. This allows you to access netTrekker at school without a username and password.

Administrative Tools

An Administrative username allows access to netTrekker Admin Tools which is located in the yellow My Tools section in netTrekker. This provides you with the ability to track your school's usage and manage usernames registered to a particular school.

Provided in your welcome email, you received an Administrator username which has been created for you. We recommend that you change the password for this username by clicking on Profile in the yellow My Tools section, once you log into netTrekker. If you have a district subscription, you can move among different schools with your admin username. This can also be changed by clicking Profile in the yellow My Tools section, and changing the school name with which it is associated by clicking on the school name drop-down menu.
