Please note that when you change your password, it will also change for all programs and systems that sync with Active Directory, including:
- Blackboard (Schoolwires)
- Business Plus
- Employee Online
- Infinite Campus
- Microsoft Office 2016 (software)
- Microsoft Office 365 (online)
- Renaissance Learning
Be sure to log in to these new systems using your new password (it may take up to 24 hours for the new password to synchronize with all systems). If you use a personal computer or smartphone to check your e-mail, use Office 365, etc., you will need to update your password on these devices, too.
You are strongly encouraged to use a different password at work than you do for personal accounts such as e-mail, banking websites, streaming video services, etc. Your password should be at least 8 characters long and include at least 3 of the following:
- lowercase letter
- uppercase letter
- special character (!, @, %, etc.)
