How to change a computer password
Student computer passwords will require a reset every 90 days. You can wait for them to "expire" but you want to do it early here is how.
Open your Chromebook, when the computer is at the start screen tap the "Apps" icon
Tap the Renton School District Update Password
Wait for the app to open, then input your OUTLOOK email: email@example.com
Old Password (it means your current password)
New password - Your new password must be completely different, you cannot repeat an old password, EVER. It also must be complex. I suggest your pick your favorite thing- mine is Puppies, then the month and year. Example: Puppies1122
This process has changed your computer password. You should now go to Skyward and change that password too, as it will also expire. If you don't remember how - there are directions HERE.
What is a complex password?
- 8-12 characters long
- it must include 3 of the following: upper case letter, lower case letter, number, special character (!@#$%^&*)
- not your name
- not your id#
- no spaces
A Google screen will pop up and ask for your Google Password - YOU DON'T HAVE ONE
Tap- "I forgot my password"
then tap- "Proceed anyway"
