Goose Creek CISD Computer Password

January 2016

Why do I need to change my password on my computer?

You can help keep your computer more secure by changing your Windows password regularly, and by using a strong password.

  1. Press CTRL+ALT+DELETE, and then click Change a password.
  2. Type your old password, type your new password, type your new password again to confirm it, and then press ENTER.

Why does our Goose Creek CISD Password Expire?

To protect users identity and the security of the network, The Technology Department requires us to change our password every 6 months. If your password is expired, the only way to change your password is on a GOOSE CREEK Computer. You can't change a password at home.

Remember your password must be at least 8 characters, have a capital letter, lowercase letter, a number and/or a symbol. Password can't be your name or be a previously used password.

Make sure to update your phone and iPad

You must change your password on all mobile devices. This can be found in the settings.

iPhone Users:

Tap on Settings -> Tap on Mail, Contacts, Calendars -> (Under Account) Tap on Exchange -> Tap on Account (email address) -> delete old password and update with new one -> Tap Done

Android Users:

Settings > Accounts and Sync > (Select your GCCISD email) > Account Settings > (Select your added account) > Scroll down to Sub heading "Server Settings" > Exchange server settings > delete old password and update with new > Save or Done

Remember each phone may be a little different.

If you have trouble, contact your CTS for help.

What happens when I get this notification while trying to check email?

When you change your password, you must update your Outlook security Window.

Make sure to manually change your password before you leave for summer or Christmas break. If your password expires while you are not at the campus, you will not be able to view email at home until you get back to the campus and change it. To avoid disruption, please change your password before you leave the campus.
