Use a password that is NOT their PPS password.
Why? Students' PPS passwords should not be
Create a naming convention that works for you and your students.
As our elementary teachers know from our IXL or Lexia passwords, the passwords for our outside sites don't have to be crazy and confusing, especially if no student data is being collected. A few good tips include making sure you don’t use personal information in the passwords. Find a naming convention that will be easy for you and your students to remember, such as using the first letter of the words of the chorus of a song or the first letters of the pledge of allegiance (ipattfotusoa), or something special to the students in your class. Another option is to come up with a storage solution, like a Google Sheet shared via Google Classroom (make a copy for each student) where they can easily access their non-PPS passwords.
Still unsure about what to do? Start here...
1) Make sure you are not using students' PPS passwords on sites other than Skyward and Google.
2) If you are, reset the passwords using the suggestions above.
