As of January 1st, 2011, all VOED_SCHOOLS users must sign up for their own account. You will have the same access to all the Power Portal content you always have had.
Vo-ed instructors who wish to register at this time may use the following link: http://www.thepowerportal.com/voed.htm. Once you register, you should receive an e-mail within an hour or so confirming your new log-in. You will still be able to access the log-in screen of the Power Portal (www.thepowerportal.com) after January 1st; however, there will be a message stating that you must register for your own account. The voed_schools ID and password you have used in the past will be disabled.
This process is going into effect for several reasons, including our scheduled re-launch of The Power Channel with testing function (March 2011). Watch for details coming soon. In case you were not aware, there are currently several Power Channel videos accessible by logging in and clicking on the Change Brand tab at the top of the page, then selecting the Power Channel icon. You will also find information and forms for our donation program and vo-ed teacher schools on the site.
We appreciate your continued support of Briggs & Stratton and The Power Portal.
