7310.2: Cyber Security Protection Measures: Password Creation and Management

To ensure security for staff and student accounts the following requirements will be followed. Staff passwords are not accessible by District Technology Staff. Staff passwords can be reset by District Technology or by the individual staff member using the portal. Student passwords are the property of the District and will be managed as such.

2. To change a student password the building administrator will make a request with the Technology Division.
3. Changes to student passwords will be communicated to the school.
