Student Computer Passwords Reset for 2017-18 School Year

BISD Student Computer Passwords for 2017-18 School Year

 

Each new school year, student computer passwords (K-5) will be reset to Bisd1234.  At the first login to a computer they will be prompted to create a new password for the year.  This password will need to be created before accessing district resources.  The new password must have at least 8 characters, one capital letter, one lowercase letter and one number.  Throughout the year, if a student forgets their password, the helpdesk will reset it back to the default password, Bisd1234, and the student will be prompted to change it again during their next login.  Please do not have students contact the Help Desk only staff members have that ability.

 

Students in 6th-12th grade will not be part of the password reset.  Instead, they will continue to use the password they chose last school year.  If they have forgotten their password, they may fill out the form below to choose a new password for this year. For account security, students must log into their Google account to fill out the password Change Form.

Usernames for students are staying the same this year as they were last year (bisd+lunch number). A roster report will be available that can assist you in looking up student usernames, if needed.  

 

The password reset does not affect the password for student Google accounts.  The password for student Google accounts will remain their birthdate at this time.  

 

Student Password Recommendations

  • K-2nd
    • Each teacher can choose a class password and login as each student for the first time to set the student’s account to that password.
    • Class passwords could be a sight word and a number (Happy2016) or perhaps the teacher's last name and a number (Smith2016).
    • Passwords must include one uppercase, one lowercase, and one number.
    • Passwords must be at least 8 characters long.
    • Once selected, teachers should make a list of students’ passwords to be shared with other teachers who may need them (EA, librarian, teammates, GT teacher, etc).
    • These passwords will need to be set prior to students using computers (classroom, lab, library etc).
  • 3rd-5th
    • Each student should choose their own password.
    • After a discussion about password security/complexity, have each student write down what they would like their password to be. This a natural place to discuss digital citizenship with the students.
    • Teachers should review each student’s choice, and approve or suggest changes.
      • Passwords must include one uppercase, one lowercase, and one number.
      • Passwords must be at least 8 characters long.
      • Passwords should be no longer than 11 characters.
      • Passwords should include words that are easy to remember/spell.
    • Once selected, teachers should make a list of students’ passwords to be shared with other teachers who may need them (EA, librarian, teammates, GT teacher, etc).
    • These passwords will need to be set prior to students using computers (classroom, lab, library etc).
  • 6th-12th
    • Students will continue to use their 2016-17 school year password.
    • Students new to BISD will have the default password: b(birthday)$. For example, a student born on Jan 1, 2008 would have a password of b01012008$
    • If they have forgotten their password, they will fill out the 6-12th Grade Student Computer Password Change Form. (http://tinyurl.com/bisdpw1718)
    • Students may access the password change form on any device.
    • For security, students must log in with their @g.birdvilleschools.net Google account to access the form.
    • The new password must be at least 8 characters long, with at least one capital letter, one lowercase letter, and one number.
    • The password change will happen periodically throughout the school day.
  • New students to BISD that enroll on the first day of school will have the default password: b(birthday)$. For example, a student born on Jan 1, 2008 would have a password of b01012008$
