Account Management

The District creates many accounts for staff and student usage in various systems.

The District makes a large attempt to sync passwords between accounts to limit number of passwords staff/students need to remember. See Account Reference below for listing.


  • Creation 
    • Student accounts typically created within 24 hours of start of enrollment 
      • Many solutions used only sync once a day and cannot create account until student has active enrollment 
    • Staff accounts typically created morning of start date 
  • Disable 
    • Student accounts 
      • typically are disabled within 24 hours of enrollment ending 
      • Best practice is to use Google Takeout 
      • Student can request for temporary 24 hour access via Helpdesk 
        • *Note* once student has been gone for 6 months account maybe deleted and data will be unrecoverable. 
    • Staff accounts 
      • typically disabled within 24 hours of last day / date of resignation.
      • Staff extended access needs to be approved through supervisor  via Helpdesk
  • Deletion 
    • Accounts are deleted 6 months after end of enrollment/employment.

Account Security

MFA required

As of end of school year ‘22-’23 all staff/contractors are required to setup MFA to access school resources.

Further District MFA details can be found in article “Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA)



Account Security measures are becoming more and more important in every facet of ones digital presence.  

Educational institutes are being targeted more and more mostly because of the following:

  • Large amounts of data (student\parent\staff)
  • Many possible ways to access part of all data
  • Limited resources\training to prevent attacks\compromises

As result many insurance companies that provide Cyber Insurance are requiring systems to be protected by multi-factor \ 2-factor authentication (MFA\2FA).
