C. Logging into Computer Systems

Network Logon

When you first login to a school computer you will be given your teacher code (two letters) that is your username.

Your password will be given to you and on entering both your username and password into the boxes you will be prompted to change your password.

To change your Network Password

You are encouraged to change your password regularly and ensure it sufficiently complex so that it cannot be guessed by others. We actively discourage use of your own birthdate or your own name when creating a password. Also ensure when entering your password that other people cannot see what you have typed. If you think your account has been compromised change your password immediately.
