NEW PASSWORD SELF RESET ICON

You may have noticed that your computer login screen has a new Password Reset icon available when you first turn on your computer. It's in the bottom left-hand corner on the login screen.

This tool allows all staff members and 6th – 12th grade students to reset forgotten computer passwords without having to contact Technology for help. It will prompt you to answer some security questions that are setup the first time you log into the My Birdville Portal.


If you have any questions on the portal or the password reset tool please check out the knowledge base articles below:
