Student Passwords for 2022-2023
We have important information to share regarding the password your student will use to obtain initial access to the student portal and instructional resources at the beginning of the 2022-23 school year.
On July 25, 2022, your student’s password will be reset to reflect their birthday. To support this effort, the student portal will be offline for maintenance from July 22 at 5:00 PM to July 25 at 12:00 AM.
To access the student portal, your student will be required to type their numeric birthday in the password field using two digits for their birth month, two digits for their birthday, and four digits for their birth year. For example, if your student’s birth occurred on June 9, 2015, their reset password would be 06092015.
Students in Grades 6-12 will be required to change their password immediately after the first successful login to the student portal. GCPS is strongly recommending that students generate a passphrase as their password. A passphrase is a sentence-like string of words that is longer than a traditional password, easy to remember, and difficult to guess. Students, families, and staff members can learn more about creating a passphrase by visiting this website.
Students in Grades K-5 will retain their birthdate password for the 2022-23 school year.
The privacy and security of the information belonging to our students, families, and employees is a strategic priority, and we appreciate your support in the district’s efforts.
Please email any concerns you may have about the password reset process.
