Classlink

  • One of Lancaster School District's goals is to help our students continue their education outside of the classroom using a variety of web-based resources. The best way to help your child access these resources is by adding the Launchpad Classlink app to your home computer, laptop, tablet, or mobile device.

     

    How to obtain the Classlink app

     

    Apple devices should access the Apple app store or iTunes

    Search for and install "Classlink Launchpad"

     

    Android devices should access the Google Play app store

    Search for and install "Classlink Launchpad"
