• What is the JPS Identity Automation Portal?

    The JPS Identity Automation portal allows the District to create and manage employee accounts, provides single sign-on (SSO) capabilities for core District applications such as email, while at the same time providing a portal for employees to securely connect to educational and professional applications.

    The JPS portal is a "one-stop-shop" where employees can manage their passwords and their multifactor authentication (MFA) applications.

    As the portal matures over time, many of the District's current applications will be folded into the portal.

    Beginning July 21, 2023, an email will be sent to all new employees using the new employee's personal email address used during the application process.  The process is automatic for all employees.

    Employees will be able to claim their account 24 hours after the basic demographic information is entered in Marathon and their status is Active.

    New Steps Required to Claim an Account and Activate Employee Email Addresses

    All employees should monitor the personal email address used to apply to the District in the JPS hiring application system.  Employees should receive an email 24-48 hours after their information has been entered into Marathon and their employment status is Active.

    Employees should read the email carefully and follow the directions to claim and activate their accounts. Employees cannot claim accounts without their employee ID and claim code sent in the email.

    Steps Required to Claim an Account and Setup MFA
