It's time to change your password!

It is always a good idea to change your password before going on break so that you do not get locked out of your computer, email or gradebook.  Here is how you change your password from the school computers.

On your Windows desktop computer, press the Alt, Ctrl and Delete buttons at the same time.
Click on "Change a Password" on the menu below:

Select your username and follow the directions on screen.

PPS Staff Password Guidelines

  • Passwords must have a minimum of 8 characters, containing both letters and numbers
  • Passwords expire after 80 days
  • Passwords should not be based on well-known or easily accessible personal information.
  • Passwords should not be trivial, predictable or obvious.
  • Passwords should not be based on the organizations's name or geographic location
  • Passwords should be treated as confidential information. No employee is to give, tell, or hint at their password to another person, including IT staff, administrators, superiors, other co-workers, friends, or family members, under any circumstances
