5. Put in your password where it says “old password”.

6. Now STOP.

7. Does your old password have between 8-16 characters, AND a capital letter, AND either a number or symbol, AND does NOT include your name or student number?  If yes, then you do not need to make up a new password, you may just re-enter your current password where it says new password and confirm.  If no, then you need to create a new password that meets the criteria above.

8. Click on the arrow. You should get a message that your password has been reset.


Now the same password works for your District Account, Google Account, and Microsoft OneDrive!
