How do I Navigate The Public Access?

The following guide explains how to access the free public access resources on CLI Engage.


You must be logged into CLI Engage
Your students must be rostered in CLI Engage
In the SCREENING, PROGRESS MONITORING AND OBSERVATION section of CLI Engage, you must see the assessment that you are requesting the report for. If you do not see this option, then open a help ticket.

  7. Once you have entered your information you will be redirected to the CLI Engage dashboard. You will have access to many resources.

  8. If you did not add your child’s information when you initially registered and wish to do so, you can add this information through the administrative tools tab. Click on Add/Edit Children.
