Connecting your device on Campus & Password Resets
Student Password Resets 2021-2022
***If you need your password reset, please contact one of your teachers ***
All student passwords were reset to their default password (birthdate) on August 3. You will need to create a new password that is at least 8 characters long and not your student number or past passwords. This process can NOT be completed on a school-issued Chromebook. Student must first activate their accounts on a personal Chromebook, computer, or phone. This can also be done on a school computer.
Students must do the following:
“Forget” the GCPS wireless network on any BYOD device used during the previous year. You may need to wait 20minutes before trying to re-connect.
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 and access their schedule when school begins. See below for step-by-step directions for students to do this.
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. You may need to wait 20 minute before reconnecting to the wifi network.
- 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.
