19-20 School Year Mandatory Password Change

19-20 School Year Mandatory Password Change
Posted on 08/09/2019

Welcome Back,

CMT has been working diligently to safeguard all of SACS data and we need your help.

On Monday, August 12th, you will be prompted to make a mandatory change of your SACS passwords. (Please do not change your passwords before you get the prompt.)  This includes your Computer login password, your PowerSchool password and your Google password. Many schools and businesses require this every 30, 60, or 90 days. We only require it changed yearly so you can memorize it and not write it down.

 

How to prepare for this

  • Make sure you know your existing password to your Computer, PowerSchool, and Google
  • You will then need to come up with a password that meets the following requirements: minimum of 8-characters, using at least 1 capital letter, 1 symbol, and 1 number – Example Hom3sTe@d.  
  • If needed, print these directions and attachments so you have them when the process starts

 

What you need to know

  • Monday August 12th you will be prompted to change your passwords
    • Please don’t change it before you get the prompt or you will have to do it again
    • To avoid problems please follow these prompts while you are on a SACS campus only
  • When changing your computer login password this will automatically change your E-mail and Canvas password to match your computer password. Please see attached 
  • When you login into Powerschool on Monday, it will also prompt you to change your password – again the new password needs to be minimum of 8-characters, using at least 1 capital letter, 1 symbol, and 1 number – Example Hom3sTe@d.  
  • You will not get prompted to change your Google Password. You will need to do this manually by following the attached instructions.
  • We encourage you to make these passwords the same so you can easily remember them!
  • Please do not save passwords when prompted to save automatically. This is SACS Student data and it needs to be safeguarded from any possible threats.
