1. You will login to the Vector Solutions website to access your training. All teachers, librarians, speech therapists, and nurses will use their assigned Employee Identification Number (EIN) to login to the Vector Solutions website at https://conroe-tx.safeschools.com/login/ or by going to the CISD Single Sign-On Portal
selecting “Vector Solutions” in the CISD Apps.
