Connecting your device on Campus & Password Resets
Student Password Resets 2020-2021
***If you need your password reset, please contact one of your teachers ***
All student passwords were reset to their default password (GCPS-issued student ID) on August 3. You may need to create a new password that is atleast 8 characters long and not your student number or past passwords. If you were not enrolled on Peachtree Ridge on August 3, your password is your student number if you are a new student.
Students must do the following:
“Forget” the GCPS wireless network on any BYOD device used during the previous year. Use their GCPS-issued student ID as their user ID and password when logging onto a GCPS-networked computer or logging into the student portal for the first time. During successful login, create their new password.
Please note that it is strongly recommended that students reset their passwords at home prior to school starting, so they can be fully prepared to participate in all classroom activities, including assessments, when school begins. See below for step-by-step directions for students to do this. Please feel free to post this on your school website and hand it out to students and parents during orientation.
Connecting your device to GCPS Mobile
GCPS Mobile is the wifi network students use to connect their devices on campus. Students log-in using there username (student number) and eCLASS password.
- ANY TIME you change your password on the portal or a school computer, you will also need to update your BYOD password on your device. There are instructions below on how to FORGET the network and reconnect if, for example, you changed your network password. Then you will need to change your BYOD password to this new password on your device.
- If you have gotten a new device (phone, tablet, Chromebook, etc) and you bring it to school, you will need to connect to the GCPS-Mobile network using your computer/portal password. Follow these instructions for logging in.
- If you are logging in on a chromebook you will need to follow the Andriod directions below. While the connection directions are different, the setting in Section 3 are the ones you need.
