Why is registration required?

The SCOOP is a private website for Co-op community members only that allows the exchange of information and documents in a protected and managed environment.  To do this, the Co-op uses Google's sign-on services to manage user access to the SCOOP.  This service is free, secure, supported, and provides us with the flexibility needed to manage this site.  If you have difficulty with registering or signing onto the SCOOP, contact us by either calling the front office at 973-783-4955 or email us at tech@montclaircoop.org.

How do I register for the SCOOP?

If you are a returning parent and your primary school contact email address remains unchanged from the previous school year, then you will not need to re-register to access the SCOOP.  

The instructions below apply to all new parents or returning parents that have changed their primary school contact email address.  

You do not require a gmail address to access The SCOOP.  Follow these instructions to set up a SCOOP account with your regular email address (gmail, verizon, comcast, or other). 

1.  When you try to access the SCOOP (
thescoop.montclaircoop.org) for the first time, you will be presented with a Google sign in page similar to below
.
2.  If your primary school email address is a gmail address, all you will need to do is login at the above panel with your gmail address and password and you will then be auto-forwarded to the SCOOP home page.  If not, then here's the link:  thescoop.montclaircoop.org.   You can then disregard the remaining steps in this procedure.  

3.  If your primary school email address is not a gmail address, click on "Create an account" located in blue color text just below the login box.  You will then be presented with the screen below.  Follow the instructions to set up a Google account with your regular email address (e.g. "janedoe@verizon.net", "johndoe@comcast.com, etc."). You do not have to create a new Gmail address.  

4.  Click on "I prefer to use my current email address".  

5.  Complete the form and enter your complete email address in the "Your current email address" field (e.g. youremail@youremailprovider.com).  The password you enter will be your SCOOP password and does not have to be the same as your email account password.  Click on the Next step button at the bottom of the form.  

6.  Google will then send a verification email to the account you entered.  Once verification is completed, you will then be able to access the SCOOP using your email address and the new password you entered in the registration page.  


Troubleshooting:

  • If you have signed in but cannot see the Home Page or Class Pages in the left-side navigation, then you do not have permissions to access the site. Permission is based on the current school year's class email lists. If you believe you should have access, please contact Prita Moti.
  • If you continue to have trouble accessing the SCOOP, contact the Co-op technology team at tech@montclaircoop.org or call us at 973-783-4955 x217.
