The window above is where you will be changing your district password.  Go ahead and type your Current Password into Top Box followed by typing in your new Password Twice into the the next 2 Boxes. Once you have completed this go ahead and click on the Change button in the lower right of the window.

If you have followed all of the steps up to this point accurately you will have received a message stating that you have successfully changed your password. The best way to confirm that your password is changed is that the number in the icon in the upper right hand corner should have changed to 90D, meaning 90 Days remaining until your next Password Change is Required.

PLEASE NOTE: TSS highly recommends upon a successful password change that you restart your computer . This is to ensure that your new password syncs with all the other databases that use it like Genesis and other District resources

If you do not receive a successful message, or are still  having difficulty please complete the following steps:

  • Reboot your computer by clicking the Apple in the upper left hand corner,  clicking Restart, then repeating these steps upon reboot as this tends to resolve most password change issues when using the password monitoring tool.
