The digital citizenship, safety and security skills students learn today are extremely important, and they likely will use passwords throughout their lifetimes. With student digital safety in mind, next school year, all students in grades 3-12 must change their passwords a minimum of once per year.
After allowing time for our educators to have conversations with students about secure passwords, students in grades 3-12 will be forced via a prompt to change their password on September 18, 2019, if they have not already done so.
We hope sharing this information now can help you prepare for this change in practice next year. If you have questions, please talk with your school’s assigned Learning Technology Integrator.
