Password Protocols for New Parent Accounts

New parent accounts will have the following password protocols effective January 7, 2014. Existing parent accounts are not affected at this time. Password re-set implementation planning is underway for existing parent accounts.

Passwords must be at least eight characters in length. Users will be locked out of the system after 10 invalid password attempts. Locked

accounts need to be unlocked using your typical support channels. For existing parent accounts a onetime password reset will be required not later than

the 2015-2016 school year to enforce password complexity requirements. Parents will only be required to reset their password once, rather than annually. New parent accounts created on or after January 7, 2014 will not require password resets.Password must include complexity. You password must have at least:

oone uppercase letter, oone lowercase letter, oone number, and oone special character. Special characters are the keyboard characters not

defined as letters, numerals or spaces. They include` ~ ! @ # $ % ^ & * ( ) _ - + = {

} [ ] \ |: ;" '< >, . ?/ Username does not change.
