Reminder - student passwords!

On July 23, 2021, student passwords will be reset to reflect their birthdays.

To access the student portal, students will be required to type their numeric birthday in the password field using two digits for their birth month, two digits for their birthday, and four digits for their birth year. For example, if a student’s birth occurred on June 9, 2015, their reset password would be 06092015.

Students in Grades 6-12 will be required to change their password immediately after the first successful login to the student portal. GCPS is strongly recommending students to generate a passphrase as their password. Students, families, and staff members can learn more about creating a passphrase by visiting our website at
